Belle writes: In a story for today’s Progress, Jake Mooney tallies campaign donations to current City Council candidates, as well as those who didn’t succeed in gaining their party’s nomination. The report leaves it to readers to analyze the significance, if any, of the donors, the recipients, and the sums, as well as the general role of money in City politics. Would perhaps some cvillenews.com readers like to contribute their analyses here?
Full disclosure: Waldo Jaquith was one of those candidates for City Council, raising $4,705. But it was actually a bunch less if you discount the services that we over-valued and didn’t actually have anything to do with the campaign but listed out of paranoia.
