This Special Meeting of the committee has been cancelled because of the Thanksgiving holiday. The committee’s next meeting is scheduled for December 28th, but that meeting, too, is likely to be cancelled, pushing discussion to the January 25th meeting.
Candidates in the upcoming 2022 City Council races have expressed an eagerness to know whether they are bound to the state mandated limit of $4900 per contributor, but it is unclear how the council will proceed.
