Campaign Finance Reports In
Looks like the candidates in the District Attorney's race have turned in their latest finance reports. I was sorry to see Worth Dikeman reach to the dark side and accept $1000 from what must be his sister, who lives in Vallejo.
But, not to be outdone, Gallegos' has taken at least four contributions from out of the area: Irvine, CA, New Mexico, El Cerrito and Berkeley.
Gallegos also outdid Dikeman in fundraising pulling in $81,000 to Dikeman's $79,000. That's a closer spread than I'd expected.
One thing seems clear; If you believe in local control of elections, Dikeman is the clear choice as he depends less on out of the area financing for his campaign.
If you believe that big money corrupts politics, the obvious choice is Dikeman, as he raised less money. Sure, he came close to Gallegos, but less money is less money.
If you support local control and clean elections, how could you vote for anybody but Dikeman?
