Limits in Aurora

The Aurora, Illinois City Council is considering campaign finance limits.

Alderman Scheketa Hart-Burns put her foot on the accelerator Tuesday in an effort to get the full City Council debating campaign-finance reform in Aurora.

After two meetings of the Government Operations Committee Burns leads, the 7th Ward alderman called for a special session on Friday to wrap up the group’s discussion of Mayor Tom Weisner’s proposal to cap contributions from businesses with or seeking city contracts, as well as limit how much an individual candidate can pump into his or her own campaign.

Weisner’s ordinance differs from rules proposed in May by Alderman and fellow mayoral candidate Rick Lawrence only in that it includes the individual spending provision.
