FPPC Says No Open Cases Regarding Measure M Violations

Long Beach City Attorney Charles Parkin
The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) has notified the City of Long Beach that
there are no open cases against the city concerning alleged FPPC violations pertaining to
Measure M.
An FPPC Complaint, brought forth by E. Gerrie Schipske, alleged that city informational
materials received by residents were meant to influence the passage of the Measure. The
city maintains that under FPPC rules and regulations, the city was within its legal right to
provide informational materials to the public regarding Measure M, and those materials
were informational. The city provided the materials mindful of FPPC rules to help inform
voters on this complex municipal issue.
Measure M is a City Charter Amendment that explicitly authorizes and affirms the transfer
of surplus city utility revenues to the city's general fund to support Long Beach general
government services. Measure Mwas approved by Long Beach voters on June 5, 2018.
