Advocates target industry's political donations

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — According to Grisanti’s website and his chief of staff, Doug Curella, Grisanti does support further limitations on contribution. 

“I believe that we must review the maximum amount an individual, business or political action committee can donate,” his website states. “I also believe that we need stronger and more robust disclosure of campaign contributions that includes rigorous enfrocement of the law. I would also call on further increases to the penalties for campaign finance law violations.”

But Grisanti, along with many other state Republicans, are not in favor of instating elections that are publicly funded. 

“We are not in favor of taxpayer funded elections,” Curella said.
