The expenditure ceiling was lifted today in the primary election race for City Council District (CD) 10.

Candidates who participate in the City’s matching funds program agree to limit their campaign expenditures in both the primary and general elections. The expenditure ceiling in a particular race is lifted and no longer applies when a candidate who is not participating in the matching funds program spends more than the expenditure ceiling for matching funds candidates in that race. For the upcoming March 3 primary election, the expenditure ceiling for participating City Council candidates is $537,000.

Mark Ridley-Thomas is a CD 10 candidate who is not participating in the matching funds program. He notified the Ethics Commission today that his campaign committee has made or incurred expenses that exceed the $537,000 spending limit for the March 3 election. As a result, the expenditure ceiling has been lifted for matching funds candidates in the CD 10 race.

Additional information about candidate fundraising and spending in the 2020 elections, including disclosure reports and campaign communications, is available on the Election Totals page.  Campaign activity and political communications may also be searched on the Public Data Portal.

The Ethics Commission was created by Los Angeles voters in 1990 to impartially administer and enforce the City’s governmental ethics, campaign financing, and lobbying laws.
