Fremont Planning Commissioner Sue Chan, who was part of Fremont’s trade mission to China, emailed me to say that several of the smaller parade donors are Fremont companies that do business in China. Here’s her list:
Delta Products Corporation $2000
Phihong USA $2000
Nouvelle Bistro/Vantec USA $2000
I also got a call from a teacher who thought it was nice that the A’s , Wells Fargo and Robson Homes gave so much money to the parade, but wondered if it would have been better spent on local schools which are all facing major budget cuts. At least the gas companies should help out a little, she said.
