The Fair Elections Program is D.C.’s public election financing system designed to level the playing field and remove the influence of special interests. Patrick was the first candidate to participate in it, and he will only be accepting contributions from individuals–which are limited to $50.
All D.C. residents who give $5 or more will have their contributions matched at a 5 to 1 rate, so if you donate $50, it will be matched with $250, making your total contribution effectively $300. Residents outside the District may also give up to $50, but contributions will not be matched.
Your contribution helps us get the word out about our campaign and our vision for a more open, honest, inclusive and accountable D.C. government.
