Stumping in the Grove
P.G. campaign finance statements turn up some surprises.
Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Garcia loaned herself $1,000 for the campaign, and marketer Shane Dolbier donated website design worth $1,000.
Her biggest cash donors include:
- $1,000 total from Marita Johnson and Monda Martignoni of Marita's Boutique
- $500 from engineer Douglas Thomas
- $250 from Hewlett-Packard Purchasing Manager Elaine Mackoff
- $200 from Madelyn Trotter of Trotter's Antiques
Challenger Rudy Fischer reports $825 in monetary contributions - $500 of that from himself - plus a $3,000 loan from himself. Insight Industries CEO Ken Lamneck pitched in $200, and retiree Alice Courter another $100.
Incumbent Alan Cohen reports $776 in contributions through Sept. 30, including $100 each from Pied Piper Management Owner Fran O'Hagan and retired resident Lana Gradasoff.
According to the City Clerk, there were no statements filed by challenger Richard Ahart or unchallenged incumbents Daniel Miller and Robert Huitt.
Although the campaign disclosure statements typically cover the period from July 1-Sept. 30, only Garcia and Cohen's statements reflect that timeframe. Fischer's covers July 15-Oct. 4. And oddly, Cuneo's reportedly covers just two-plus weeks, from Oct. 5-21 - though the statement was stamped "Received" in City Hall Oct. 19.
