I've been reading a lot about efforts to take money out of politics, and one of the common ideas is to implement public campaign funding, so that candidates can't/don't have to be the best fundraiser in order to win (and can't win by promising to serve the interests of a few big donors). I wonder if this would also be an answer to raising the profile of municipal elections - if candidates had access to some form of campaign grant or resources for advertising their platforms. I'm not sure what it would look like or what the pitfalls would be, but it might be an interesting idea.
