Yucaipa Counsel Enables Its Members To Collect $10,000 From Individual Political Donors

In a move that was both negatively and positively received and perceived, the Yucaipa City in a 3-to-1 vote last week raised the political donation limit its members can receive from any single contributor from the current state generic standard of $5,500 to $10,000.
While some of the city’s residents saw the change as one which will release the county’s 13th most populous city from the grip of prissy anti-development forces that have played a role in the city’s slow maturation for the lion’s share of its 34-year history as a municipality, others expressed dismay that it has advanced what many perceive as the increasing sway of the building industry that will serve to fully manifest the pay-to-play ethos that has transformed more and more of the region’s once agricultural land into increasingly urbanized cities.
