San Francisco Assessor-Recorder and mayoral candidate Phil Ting today demanded fellow candidate Mayor Ed Lee to follow the rules of public financing spending limits. 'If Mayor Lee wants to raise money outside of the public financing system that is his choice, but he should also choose to abide by the spending limits that help ensure public trust in our political process," Ting said in a written statement.
Also, due to Monday's hostile mayoral forum at the Castro Theatre, Ting asks all of the mayoral candidates to stop attack Lee. Ting goes on to say, “San Franciscans are tired of all the political attacks, and they shouldn’t have to pay for it through public financing. That’s why my Reset San Francisco campaign is about attacking our problems - not attacking each other.”
