Following the Money in Norco Controller Race
Barron raised $6,838.57 over this reporting period, giving him a total of $17,573.57. His contributors include former Exec Glenn Reibman ($585), former Council member Charles Dertinger ($300), and of course, lots and lots of unions. This includes $250 from the Asbestos Workers, which must have been pleased when Barron asked for an asbestos investigation at the County, which might cost us $1.1 million. And all unions must have been thrilled when Barron threatened some sort of official retaliation when non-union T-Mobile refused to see him without an appointment.
Barron has spent $3,571, leaving him with $14,0002.07 for one or two mailers.
Salvesen raised just $1,525 over this reporting period, giving him only $2,135. His biggest contributor so far is Broughal & DeVito ($500), who serve as Solicitors to Hanover Township. Salvesen has been a Supervisor there for 28 years.
After spending $1,310.63, Salvesen had just $824.37, not enough for a mailer.
