“Judge orders campaign-finance question put on Miami-Dade ballot”

Miami Herald:

A judge Friday ordered that Miami-Dade voters get a chance to decide on new rules for campaign donations, reversing a decision by county commissioners to keep the measure off the November ballot because of alleged legal flaws.

Circuit Court Judge William Thomas ruled the union-backed group behind the proposal to ban county contractors and their lobbyists from donating to county candidates followed all the required steps to secure a ballot slot.

County lawyers promptly appealed Thomas’ decision, setting up a showdown next week before the Third District Court of Appeal in western Miami-Dade.
