    Ald. Matt Martin (47) was joined by several City Council colleagues and a coalition of progressive and good government organizations Tuesday to call for passage of his ordinance to allow for public financing of aldermanic campaigns.

    “Our current campaign finance system is broken,” said Martin during a news conference at City Hall Tuesday. “Too often it forces candidates to rely heavily on a few big special interest donors on their campaigns.”

    The ordinance (O2024-0010156) was introduced at last week’s City Council meeting and referred to the Committee on Committees and Rules.
