Wolf Receives $40,000 Donation from Service Union

Second District Supervisor Janet Wolf (pictured opening her new campaign office) recently received a $40,000 donation from the political committee for Service Employees International Union (SEIU), bringing her total campaign war chest to more than $150,000; her $92,000 in donations last year were mostly relatively small amounts from individual donors as well as $7,000 from Supervisor Salud Carbajal. Wolf’s challenger Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves raised $106,000 in 2013, including $4,000 from Pacific Petroleum in Santa Maria, $2,000 from the president of Santa Maria Energy, and $5,100 from the Towbes Group.
