Ballot issue campaign committees supporting or opposing ballot issues in the August 7th Election were required to be filed with Missouri Ethics Commission by July 8th. No such ballot issue campaign committees were filed to support or oppose Proposition 1.
As of July 15, there is no website associated with supporting Proposition 1.
As of July 15, there is only an informational campaign for Proposition 1 run from City Hall and containing only proponent information.
The MEC has repeatedly ruled that government entities may spend tax dollars on educational materials on ballot issues as long as they do not say “Vote For…”.
Elected officials are also permitted to make support or opposition statements on ballot issues from their elected offices via press releases and posted to official website and social media.
For the purposes of providing Pro-Con information to members of 7th Ward Independent Democrats prior to endorsement vote and the general public, we are using “educational” materials and elected officials statements as Proponent Views. When and if more information is available, we will update this post.
