Follow the Money: See Salient Contributions To Campaigns Of Council Incumbent O'Donnell And Challenger Supernaw


(June 2, 2012) -- With the June 5 runoff in the 4th Council district days away, campaign finance reports filed by challenger Daryl Supernaw and Council incumbent Patrick O'Donnell show who gave money to whose campaigns and how much. Below are salient contributors to the candidates' campaigns between April 22 and May 30 (with sums for these contributors also indicating amounts for the primary (P) and general election runoff (G)).

The sums below are for candidate-run campaign activities. Political action committees (PACs, formed by various interest groups) can contribute to a candidate's campaign AND separately spend sums to conduct their own independent activities in support of a candidate. Because independent campaign contributions aren't limited by the LB-voter enacted $350 maximum on contributions to a candidate's campaign in LB's primary and general election cycles, they may eclipse the sums you see below. Councilman Patrick O'Donnell is supported by three major PACs: the LA County Federation of Labor AFL-CIO PAC and the LB Police Officers Ass'n PAC and the LB Firefighters Ass'n PAC. Challenger Daryl Supernaw hasn't received money or support from any PACs. will be reporting independent PAC campaign spending separately.
