FPPC Drops Investigation Against Councilwoman Price -- Didn't Spend More Than $1000 to Advocate for Measure M
A FPPC complaint had been filed by OpenUpLongBeach founder and public advocate, Gerrie Schipske, asserting that the Mayor and City Council and certain individual councilmembers used taxpayer monies to advocate for the passage of Measure M.
In dismissing the complaint that Councilwoman Price had used taxpayer funds to send out a lengthy email advocating for Measure M, the FPPC Enforcement Division held that Councilwoman Price used "personal funds" to advocate for Measure M and that because the threshold for an independent expenditure is $1000 or more, the complaint was dismissed.
The complaint against the entire City Council and Mayor concerning hiring a political consultant to target only a portion of voters with information and advocacy on Measure M is still under investigation by the FPPC.
