Big Money: Campaign Finance Totals for the Recall in Santa Cruz
by Santa Cruz News Network
Groups in support of the recall in Santa Cruz have raised $176,408 total in cash donations, while groups opposing the recall have only taken in $31,804, according to the current campaign finance reports available on the City's website which reflect contributions and expenditures made through February 15. Of the City Council replacement candidates, Renée Golder raised the most in cash donations at $28,426, Don Lane follows her with $12,253, Katherine Beiers raised $10,499, and Tim Fitzmaurice raised $6,838. Big money has never entered a City Council election in Santa Cruz like it has in the campaign to recall Councilmembers Drew Glover and Chris Krohn, which was organized to break up the new Progressive majority on the Council, the first of its kind in 16 years. Santa Cruz News Network has previously published an itemized list that shows real estate interests accounted for more than half of the total monetary contributions supporting the recall campaign, as reported to the City through January 18.
