Re: Report Of Contributions and Expenditures In The 1998 City Election
The attached report is published by the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission. It is compiled from the campaign finance disclosure reports that the candidates and ballot issue committees are required to file, under the Seattle Elections Code.
1998 is an "off-year" for Seattle elections, no City Offices are up for election this year. Seattle voters will be considering one city ballot issue this year, the Library Facilities Bond, Proposition No. 1. City voters will also be electing Municipal Court judges this year, but these positions are not required to follow city disclosure rules. Judges are only required to file disclosure forms with the State and County.
We hope this report assists you in understanding and participating in City government. If we can provide more information, please call us at 206/684-8500, e-mail us at email@example.com, or come into the office at 226 Municipal Building, 600 Fourth Avenue, Seattle, 98104. We welcome your interest.
