Browning Challenges Opponents to Disclose Campaign Donors Now
“This campaign should focus on the issues and be decided by voters in Lehigh County who are free from the undue influence of shadowy, special interest PAC’s run by party bosses and connected insiders looking for a quid pro quo,” said Browning, who earned a reputation as a reformer during his time as County Commissioner, in part, by requiring the online posting of campaign finance reports and making County Commissioner meetings available on the internet. “I refuse to accept one penny from these Super PAC’s and I pledge to disclose every contribution my campaign receives within 24 hours. I respectfully challenge Commissioner Ott and Mr. Muller to do the same. Together we can set a higher standard for how campaigns should be run in Lehigh County.”
Although not required, Browning said that he will file a Sixth Tuesday Pre-Primary report to show all donations received through the April 1st cutoff date for that report and that he will disclose all contributions received after that date on his campaign web site within 24 hours.
