Concerned About Election Spending in Monterey Park

March 22, 1992

Many thanks for the excellent articles on Monterey Park council candidates and how they seek funding (Times, March 12). These articles reflect a sad commentary on the politics of today.

When a potential exists that over $70,000 (including all candidates) can be raised for a council seat, it raises many concerns as to the independence of a candidate. This constitutes the largest amount of money raised in the history of any Monterey Park council race, all for a job that pays $200 a month.

No wonder voters find this the best argument for putting a lid on campaign spending. No wonder we keep hearing about the anti-incumbent mood sweeping the country.
