"Doing Business" Contributions Summary
2017 Citywide Elections

Open PDF: Open PDF
Last Updated: Jan 23 2015 9:27AM

This report details all “doing business” contributions accepted by candidates for City office.

There are strict, low limits on contributions from people connected with entities who do business with the City, and these contributions are ineligible to be matched with public funds. To enforce the limits, contributions reported by candidates to the CFB are compared to the City’s Doing Business Database (DBDB). People are listed in the DBDB only while they are doing business; the lower limits apply only if the contribution is made during that specific period of time. Candidates are required to issue refunds for any amount that exceeds the “doing business” limit.

The aggregate numbers and amounts of these transactions are listed below for each candidate.

To view individual contributions, the full list of contributions from people identified as “doing business” with the City is available for download in Microsoft Excel format (.xls) below.

For more information, see the CFB’s “doing business” FAQ page.
