Fred's campaign proved you can reach voters in this city for about $60,000. Obviously, more money can help you try to drown out the other candidates, or persuade citizens not on the basis of your platform but through image. Surely now is the time to put strict campaign spending limits into place. I'd say it would make sense to cap spending at, say, $100,000, and to ban corporate donations -- still a lot of money, but an amount that a serious candidate could be expected to raise from individuals.
