Correction: Committee for Change

In this week’s 7 Days column, I said that a new campaign fund called Committee for Change was a political action committee. Committee for Change’s treasurer, Deputy Corporation Counsel Peter Savage III, called this morning to correct me: It’s actually a multi-candidate committee. A PAC can only contribute money to the candidates it supports; a multi-party committee can make direct expenditures in support of candidates. I apologize for the error.
