Valero/Labor PAC for Largaespada and Strawbridge, against Kari Birdseye gets a second contribution from the Boilermakers
The Anti-Birdseye political action committee (PAC) filed a new contribution report yesterday. This report shows another receipt of $15,000 on October 31. This is the second contribution from the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers (etc.). The “Brotherhood” helped kickstart the fund with a $30,000 contribution on October 10.
This raises the total Valero-inspired anti-Birdseye fund to $195,000. The four candidates are limited by City ordinance to less than $30,000 each. So the PAC now has over six times the financial power than any citizen who organizes friends and neighbors to support a campaign.
