Last minute contributions roll in [October 31]

Last minute contributions roll in [October 31]

It’s five days until city and county elections, people, and last-minute contributors to candidates are rolling in from private donors  and special-interest political action committees (PACs) trying to push their man or woman over the top. Charlottesville Tomorrow, via the Virginia Public Access Project, reported the most recent donations to Albemarle County Board of Supervisor candidates.

Incumbent David Wyant recently raised $12,500 for his Board of Supervisors campaign. His challenger, Ann Mallek, netted $5,500.

White Hall Republican incumbent David Wyant racked up $12,500 in recent donations. The bulk of that comes from—who else?—business and developer PACs. His Democratic challenger, Ann Mallek, netted $5,500 in  new donations, two grand from the Democratic Road Back PAC and the rest from her husband.

Rivanna Republican incumbent Ken Boyd got a whooping $9,000 check from the Monticello Business Alliance, a pro-business and economic development PAC. Its latest donation brings the group’s total Boyd contributions to $13,500. We couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried.
