Wherefrom the Money?

I was intrigued about something I heard about donations to candidates for 3rd District Supervisor, so I went to the county website to look at the data myself. I found that more than 70 percent of contributions to the campaign for Bruce Porter came from donors inside the 3rd District. His opponent, Joan Hartmann, received less than 30 percent of her contributions from inside the 3rd District.

I want an elected representative who will represent me and my neighbors, not someone who will represent special interests from somewhere else. I have even more confidence now that Bruce Porter is the best choice for county supervisor. Please join me in voting for him on November 8.
