While an election campaign transparency bill has stalled in the state Legislature, Sutter County has moved ahead with its own transparency measures.

Sutter County Registrar of Voters Donna Johnston ordered the addition of pages on the county’s website to meet some of the goals outlined in Assembly Bill 322, which was stalled in the Assembly Appropriations Committee earlier this year, according to a county press release. The bill will be taken up by the committee next year.

The Sutter County Elections staff has added campaign finance information to its website in support of the bill, including uploaded campaign statements for the 2020 election cycle contests — which include the board of supervisor contests for districts 1, 3 and 5. Additional campaign statement filings will be added for future election filings.
