Four candidates for the Davis school board and supporters of Measure E, the local school parcel tax proposal, filed campaign finance reports last week with the Yolo County Elections Office.

And the Yes for Our Students committee, which supports Measure E, raised $16,108 in cash plus $215 worth of nonmonetary contributions, for a total of $16,324.

The funds reported were donated between July 1 and Sept. 30. Fundraising is still under way, and another campaign finance report will be due in late October.

She also reported nonmonetary contributions of $125 from Reid-McMahon LLC for web hosting; $107 from Ed and Jacqueline Clemens, for event rentals; and $237 from the Clemenses for food.

Jose Granda’s campaign reported contributions of $50 from Janet Zwalhen and $25 from Kumar Sah. The candidate also donated $642 to the campaign.

Candidate Claire Sherman did not file a report since she raised under $1,000, which is the threshold at which a report is required.

The Yes for Our Students campaign, which supports Measure E, received contributions of $5,425 from Tandem Properties; $3,000 from Greg McNece, CPA; $2,000 from Oakshade Avalon Inc.; $1,000 from Aspen Village Apartments, Glacier Point Apartments and Saratoga West Apartments; $250 from Jim and Mary Nicholson; $200 from Chuck Roe; Tim and Kelli Taylor; and $150 from Heidy Kellison.

The No School Board Taxes political action committee, which opposes Measure E, reported no financial activity for the June 29-Sept. 30 reporting period. The committee did raise funds after Sept. 30, and those donations will be reported in late October.

    "Major donors to Fernandes’ campaign include: Davis Firefighters Local 3494, and Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 447, $500;" Quite strange that the unions which love to corrupt our politics are giving money to Alan Fernandes. The Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 447 is the same group which helped to pay for the hit piece on Sue Greenwald in the City Council race earlier this year. I also remember that the Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 447 gave their money to Lucas Frerichs, which Lucas returned after their attack mailer came out. I guess it is just a coincidence that Lucas is listed as a major Fernandes (and Lovenburg) donor, too. ... I would think that with the horrible record of the Davis Firefighters Local 3494 corrupting Davis City Council campaigns, Mr. Fernandes would have the good sense to return both of these donations.
