Check out the cash flowing into Contra Costa County candidates’ campaign accounts, per Thursday night’s campaign finance report filing deadline.

    Lisa, Regarding the Assessors race, and the article by Rick Radin this morning, about Gus Kramer. Does it not raise some red flags? Somebody made a contribution on behalf of the 50 member engineering unit. The contribution came out of the, I guess, unit operating fund, without authorization, and without the knowledge of the Local #1 Pac board. Who wrote the check for $1,500? It raises suspicions that something is not right.

  • Lisa Vorderbrueggen

    That’s why Rick wrote the story; it raises questions.

    Rick said he has not yet seen the check. But the unit president works for Kramer at the assessor’s office and I assume that the unit president either knew about or signed the check. We’ll keep you posted when we know more.
