Swanson pulls to front in council money race

From page A1 | May 25, 2014 |

City Councilwoman Rochelle Swanson has raised more money than any other City Council candidate as of May 17, according to campaign finance reports.

Campaign finance statements due on Thursday, May 22, show that, as the June 3 election for two seats on the City Council nears, Swanson and Robb Davis have made strides in the money race ahead of other candidates. Sheila Allen, John Munn and Daniel Parrella, in that order, bring up the rear of the money race, although Davis, Allen and Munn are within a couple grand of each other.

Swanson has raised $16,075 in monetary donations for the calendar year up to the May 17 cut off. She ended the period with $2,430 in cash on hand. Davis raised $12,106 including $588 in loans and had $10,183 in ending cash on hand for the same period. Allen raised $11,638, including $2,000 in loans for the period. She ended the period with $3,121 in cash on hand and $2,000 in debts.

Munn raised $11,301, including $1,540 in loans and ended up with $3,804 in cash and $15,345 in debt. Parrella raised $9,150 with $3,750 in loans and $3,888 in cash at the end of the period.

Whether money translates to votes, and how much money translates to votes, is the perennial mystery of any local campaign, but lawn signs and mailers can help get a campaign’s message out. Especially when a candidate is running a first-time effort and needs name recognition.

In the last two City Council race cycles, successful candidates typically raised between $19,000 and $28,000. This is despite the city’s maximum individual donation limit of $100 per person.

Some of Swanson’s notable donors are: Chamber of Commerce CEO Kemble Pope; Hotelier Ashok Patel; The California Apartment Association PAC; former Chamber of Commerce board chairs Chuck Roe, a downtown developer; J.D. Denton of Fleet Feet Davis; Steve Greenfield of Cunningham Engineering; Rose Cholewinski of SwimAmerica; Cary Arnold of Coldwell Banker-Doug Arnold Real Estate; Manny Carbahal of Carbahal & Co.; and Dennis Lindsay of Nugget Markets.

Some of Davis’ notable donors are: Marc Bavois, a technical advisor with Catholic Relief Services; Davis Chamber of Commerce PAC; Steve Greenfield of Cunningham Engineering; Bill Habicht, clergy of Davis Community Church.

A sample of Allen’s notable donors include: Sheet Metal Workers’ Association Local 104 PAC; Davis Firefighters Local 3494 PAC; Mark Braly, president of Valley Climate Action Center; Kemble Pope, CEO Davis Chamber of Commerce; Juanitas Cyril, Vice President of Blackboard, Inc. Lucas Frerichs, City Councilman; Dan Wolk, Mayor Pro Tem; Susan Lovenburg, school board member; Gina Daleiden, school board president; Yolo County Supervisors Don Saylor and Jim Provenza; state Sen. Lois Wolk, former Assemblywoman Helen Thomson and former Davis Mayor Ann Evans.

Munn’s sampling of notable supporters include: Sheet Metal Workers’ Association Local 104 PAC; Attorney William Kopper; Attorney Dennis Campos; Alzada Kinckerbocker, owner of Avid Reader; Dennis Lindsay, CFO Nugget Market; John Chiles, farmer; Janis Lott, owner of Newsbeat.

Some of Parrella’s notable donors are: Kemble Pope, CEO Davis Chamber of Commerce; Alan Pryor, Natural Resource Commission member; Madhavi Sunder, UC Davis law professor; Davis Chamber of Commerce PAC.

— The following correction was published Friday, May 30: Sunday’s story on Davis City Council candidates’ fundraising did not mention the money Robb Davis collected in 2013. His total raised is $14,553, the second-highest among the five candidates.
