The Open and Accountable Elections program seeks to reduce the influence of money in politics, enable Portlanders without affluent networks to run for and win elected office, and encourage election of people to the City Council and City Auditor who are reflective of and accountable to all Portlanders. Information about the responsibilities and time commitment for the Public Campaign Finance Commission is here.
