Reports reveal cumulative totals for Largaespada and Strawbridge, and against Birdseye
The Anti-Birdseye committee filed three separate reports with the City of Benicia on October 25, showing its expenditures through October 20, 2018.
- PAC Working F’s Form_465_1.pdf – For Largaespada, total of $25,184.81, with breakdown of individual expenditures.
- PAC Working F’s Form_465_2.pdf – Against Birdseye, total of $16,836.06, with breakdown of individual expenditures.
- PAC Working F’s Form_465_3.pdf – For Strawbridge, total of $16,836.07, with breakdown of individual expenditures.
TOTAL OF $58,857
Seems the PAC favors Largaespada as its top priority. Buying a seat, placating Strawbridge, dumping on Birdseye.
Most interesting: all three reports show expenditures of $4,733.33 (or $4,733.34) for “USE OF POLL, Received from Valero Services, Inc. and its affiliated entities, 3400 East Second St., Benicia.” The total of the three is $14,200 – the exact amount previously reported donated by Valero Services. The BIG QUESTION: is this referring to data gathered in the secret and possibly illegal “push poll” conducted by EMC and Research America?
