Campaign donations 2010

For a few weeks now, I have been compiling as much campaign finance information as was available to me.

Well, I finally finished. I have separated the information into three spreadsheets that I am sharing with the public: one containing candidate information, the other containing donor information, and the last containing itemized transactions from the donors to the candidates.

As I wrote before, it's difficult to find information on local elections. There is simply not a lot of money in play and the data is hard to get your hands on.

Is Donna Coffey an Orange County School Board progressive candidate?

I know there has not been a lot of talk about the Orange County School Board Race but....  

Does anyone know what is going on with Donna Coffey?  I see that she got the endorsement by the INDY, but she is also getting the endorsement from the Orange County Republican Party as “the conservative candidate”, in fact they had a meeting 2 Saturday’s ago (17th) at the Cedar Grove Ruritan Club to Introduce her….

You can't be a Progressive Candidate if you’re endorsed by the Orange County GOP as “The Conservative Candidate”!
