Letters: Who's buying City Hall?

October 14, 2012

Re "Garcetti edges Greuel in donations," Oct. 11

I really don't care how much money our candidates for Los Angeles mayor are gathering (it's as though the voting doesn't count, only the money they collect). But I'm really interested in who gives them the money. Who's buying our politicians, and to whom will our lawmakers will be beholden after they get elected?

What a sorry state of affairs. I long for the day when campaigns are publicly funded and we can be assured that after candidates get elected, they make decisions beneficial to all, not just those who paid to get them elected.
