Sept. 30 text update: LBPOA President James Foster tells LBREPORT.com that a July 9 contribution of $25,000 to the Committee from the LB Police Officers Ass'n PAC (roughly a month after the June Measure M election) was to close out/help pay off remaining Committee debt/unpaid bills (listed as $39,863 as of June 30) from the Committee's Measure M campaign. As previously reported by LBREPORT.com, on Sept. 5 Mayor Garcia changed the name of his pro-Measure M Committee to the Garcia/Doud Committee to support Measures AAA-DDD. LBPOA President Foster says his organization hasn't donated any funds to the current ballot campaign for Measures AAA-DDD.
Mr. Foster adds that the LBPOA has supported the Mayor and Council members who have endorsed the ballot measures.
LBREPORT.com notes that Mr. Foster is a co-signer in his capacity as LBPOA President of the ballot arguments in support of Measure AAA (City Auditor's authority) and Measure BBB (term limits.)
The recently formed LB Reform Coalition Political Action Committee (PAC), whose first goal is the defeat of Measure BBB, held its first fundraiser on Sept. 20 (just outside the recently-concluded reporting period) meaning its first financial report is due in early October.
