Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

Clarifications

• In the July 10 article “Anti up,” New Times used an incorrect homophone in a quote from Paso Robles City Councilman Steve Martin. The correct quote should read, “I thought that the manufacturing zone should be kept as discrete as possible.”

• An article about Debbie Peterson’s mayoral campaign (“Grover’s Peterson will seek a second mayoral term,” July 10) misstated one of Peterson’s accomplishments. Peterson said she’s proud of increasing the transparency of various SLO County government committees on which she’s served.
