From page A5 | March 03, 2013 |

To cap off what has been a fairly lucrative campaign for Measure I, the Davis Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee donated $5,000 to the Yes on Measure I committee Friday, raising its total contributions received to $71,137.

Yes on Measure I also received $10,000 more from Laborers Local 185, a general construction union based in Sacramento. Various labor groups in the area already had given $10,000 to support the project.

The $5,000 ChamberPAC contribution came on the behalf of 34 businesses to support the final efforts of the campaign.

“We are proud to make this contribution to ensure the resources are available to pass Measure I and for Davis to move forward on this necessary investment in our community,” ChamberPAC chairman Michael Bisch said in a statement.

Also contributing to the effort to pass Measure I since the last finance reporting deadline on Feb. 21: Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk, $500;  Bill Streng, $250; Water Advisory Committee member Petrea Marchand, $100; and Beth Capell, $100.

The No on Measure I campaign, meanwhile, has taken in $23,990 over the course of the campaign, with its most recent contribution a $3,700 loan from Nancy and Don Price of Davis.

“As longtime Davis residents, we are very glad to contribute to getting the facts and a clear analysis of the issues before the public,” Nancy Price said Saturday. “This is such an important vote. It has been hard work and rewarding to be part of this small, all-volunteer local, grassroots campaign.”

Since Feb. 21, No on Measure I also has received $200 from Norma Turner, $75 from Deborah Patterson, $40 from Arthur Defenderfer and $75 from miscellaneous contributions.

The local businesses who gave to the ChamberPAC’s contribution are A2Z Evaluations LLC, Hibbert Lumber Co., Adecco: The Employment People, Ikeda’s California Country Market, Aguilar Janitorial Service, International House Davis, Alyce LLC, David Morris, American Red Cross of Yolo County, Nelson/Van Dissen Property, Benton J. Runquist DDS/Orthodontist, Outdoor Davis, Bullseye Leak Detection Inc., Frank Pinkner, Business Credit Card Systems Inc., Richard Kennedy Jr. DDS, C.C. Cooper & Sons Insurance, Sequoia Associates Inc., Coldwell Banker-Doug Arnold Real Estate, Sophia’s Thai Kitchen, Davis Ace, Soroptimist International of Greater Davis, Davis Aquatic Masters Inc., Star-Crossed Group Inc., Davis Aquadarts, Sunset Rotary Club of Davis, Davis Art Center, The Paint Chip, Davis Commercial Properties, University Hospitality Group, Davis Lofts Inc., Woodland Davis Termite & Pest Control, Hallmark Investment Partners and Yolo Federal Credit Union.

In addition to the $5,000 donation, many local businesses have donated thousands of dollars directly to the Yes on Measure I campaign, according to a ChamberPAC news release.
