Following the Money in the Angle, Parsons Race
Ron Angle raised $6,036.22 during this reporting period, giving him a campaign treasury of $49,086.44, the largest of all Council candidates. His biggest contributor this reporting period is Upper Mount Bethel Township resident John Howard, who gave the Bulldog $1,000.
Angle has spent $42,526.15 for what appears to be four campaign mailers.
Starting with just $244.20 in the till, Parsons raised $17,040.00, giving him a campaign warchest of $17,284.20. His biggest contributors were union PACs, from which he picked up $2,250, as well as $300 for Wind Gap incinerator proponent Nolan Perin.
Parsons has spent $14,883.05 for what appear to be campaign signs and one mailer, leaving him with $2,401.15.
Sources tell me that Parsons' mailer was dumped by the post office because it was improperly addressed. I do not know whether that is true.
