|(November 28, 2018, 11:55 p.m.) -- Mayor Robert Garcia has loaned a second $50,000 sum -- using money given by contributors to his 2018 Mayoral re-election campaign -- to the Garcia-operated Garcia/Doud Pro AAA-DDD Committee.
A recent campaign finance report indicates that on Nov. 26, Garcia made a $50,000 loan (0% interest, "due date" June 30, 2019) that comes on top of a
Garica/Doud pro-AAA-DDD Committee treasurer Mark Taylor tells LBREPORT.com "we expect the [AAA-DDD] Committee will pay back the loan in the weeks ahead."
As of November 13, the Garcia-operated pro-AAA-DDD committee listed a $10,484 cash balance with $153,589 in debts (unpaid bills.) Garcia operated the same committee (prior to adding Doud's name) to support City Hall's-desired June 2018 Measure M utility revenue transfer/diversion for the June 2018 election. Two years earlier, Garcia gave it a different name (listing former Mayors O'Neill and Foster with Garcia) urging support for the City Hall-sought Measure A sales tax increase. From July 1 through Nov. 6, 2018, the committee listed sums spent/expenses incurred of $265,263, some of which may stem from the Measure M campaign preceding the AAA-DDD campaign.
As of June 30, 2018, the Garcia for Mayor 2018 re-election committee reported a cash balance of $189,403 with no outstanding debts. In addition to its loans to the pro-AAD-DDD committee, Garcia gave $7,300 from his 2018 re-election campaign committee to support state Senator Ricardo Lara's campaign for state Insurance Commissioner.
