It is very difficult to figure out who is donating to who on the local government level. Right now, citizens have to read through hundreds of Campaign Finance documents on the City of San Jose website.

Code for San Jose built a script that automatically web scrapes the City of San Jose campaign finance website and parses the PDF spending reports. Code for San Jose then built a website for users to view aggregated summaries about local campaign finance.
