Selected Campaign Contribution Data in LB Mayor's Race

(August 2, 2001) -- In the public interest, posts below selected data from public record campaign disclosure reports made by the following committees:

  • Dan Baker for Mayor
  • Committee to Write-In Beverly O'Neill for Mayor
  • Friends of Norm Ryan - 2002
  • The reports cover the period from January 1, 2001 to June 30, 2001.

    Among the more interesting items:

    Two contributors -- Queen's Seaport Development, Inc. (the entity run by Mr. Joe Prevratil that operates the Queen Mary under lease with City Hall) and Mr. Kenneth Walker (Pres., Farmers & Merchants Bank) -- both gave $500 to incumbent Mayor O'Neill and Mayoral challenger, Vice Mayor Dan Baker.

    The City Clerk's office told that Council incumbent/Mayoral candidate Ray Grabinski did not have to file a campaign disclosure statement covering the Jan 1-June 30 reporting period because his campaign filed its organizational paperwork in July afte the June 30 filing period closed. Thus, Mr. Grabinski, and other Mayoral candidates as applicable, will file statements for the July 1-Dec. 31 filing period on or before January 31, 2002.

    LB's citywide election is April 9, 2002.
