List of Major Donations from Real Estate Interests to the Recall Campaign
by Santa Cruz News Network
Financial documents filed with the City of Santa Cruz show that real estate interests donated $78,396 in major monetary contributions to the campaign to recall Progressive Santa Cruz City Councilmembers Chris Krohn and Drew Glover (see below list). The figure is drawn from those major contributors identified on 460 forms filed with the City who provided enough information to identify their motives for contributing, however there were likely many more contributors at all financial levels who profit from financial interests in real estate or property development who either did not disclose it, or donated under $100. The $78,396 figure means that at the very least, real estate interests were responsible for half of the $155,895 in total monetary contributions reported to the City by Santa Cruz United and Santa Cruz Together, the two organizations fundraising for the recall campaign. Real estate interests have also made significant contributions to the campaign of Renée Golder, who is running as a recall replacement candidate for Santa Cruz City Council (see below list). Golder has been endorsed by Santa Cruz United and has strong ties to the real estate industry herself; Golder owns and manages two rental properties, one of which is located in the City of Santa Cruz, and she has a real estate broker's licence. As of mid-January, Golder's campaign has raised nearly the same amount of cash as all of the other city council replacement candidates combined.
