Just in time for Halloween — or is it Election Day? — comes this mailer against District 3 City Council candidate Stephen Whitburn (you can click on the button below to get the full-screen presentation):
The mailer is put out by the San Diego Voter Education Project, which according to this campaign document, is funded by $5,000 each from Robert Lehman, RSF Execare CEO, and Eugene P. Heytow, CEO of Amalgamated Bank of Chicago. Their donations are labeled as supporting Todd Gloria, Whitburn’s opponent.
Additionally, developer Thomas Sudberry, whose Quarry Falls project just passed through City Council, is listed on the filings as having donated $1,000.
The third page of the group’s mailer shows a list of Whitburn’s campaign contributions above the text: “Say NO to back room deals. Say NO to developers.”
I got this note from Jerelyn Dino, who is listed as one of the donors on the mailer:
