A Bit of House Cleaning on Campaign Finance
In our March edition, we listed the biggest contributors to the District 108 Republicans since July 1. The list included names and dollar amounts but no other information.
There’s a woman named Sally Jordan who lives in the Park Cities, and she tells me her friends were surprised to see her name next to “$5,000” on the list of Chart Westcott’s biggest contributors. Well, we should clarify that those dollars came from another Sally Jordan, who lives in Santa Barbara, Calif.
While we’re discussing campaign finance, here’s an interesting statistic that’s been mentioned on this blog only in a comment: Westcott spent a total of $1,199,989.90 in this campaign and received 3,709 votes. That comes out to $323.53 per vote. Morgan Meyer spent $63.47 per vote, and Court Alley spent $28.31 per vote.
