It is the intent <br />of the City Council of the City of Newport Beach in enacting <br />this Chapter to place realistic and enforceable limits on <br />the amount individuals may contribute to political campaigns <br />for municipal office or to influence the electorate to vote <br />for or against a ballot proposition. The purpose of this <br />Chapter is to prevent corruption or the appearance of <br />corruption in the political process and to equalize the rela- <br />tive financial ability of persons to influence the outcome <br />• of municipal elections. The City Council finds that <br />municipal elections are municipal affairs and, consequently, <br />a charter city is not preempted by general state law from <br />regulating contributions in local elections. <br />
