You have requested an advisory opinion on the following issue:

Can a retired public office holder make an expenditure from an open campaign committee on an issue of public interest when that expenditure is not directly related to an active campaign?

SYLLABUS: The expenditure of campaign committee funds on an issue of public interest is a proper expenditure of those funds, even when there is no ongoing active campaign by a retired public office holder who maintains an open campaign committee.
