The State Board of Elections (SBOE) met earlier today to discuss Chapel Hill’s Public Campaign Financing Program. After speaking with Kim Strach from SBOE this afternoon, she said that the SBOE Board has directed Chapel Hill not to release any rescue funds during the upcoming election season. The town attorney, Ralph Karpinos, was in agreement despite earlier efforts to continue going forward with their unconstitutional rescue fund scheme. In early July, the United States Supreme Court held that matching funds are unconstitutional.
