Hey, Big Spender: Public Safety First Campaign Raises More Than A Quarter-Million Dollars

Posted By on Thu, Oct 1, 2009 at 12:27 AM

Get ready for a big advertising blitz: The latest campaign finance report shows that the Public Safety First Campaign had raised $268,988 through Sept. 21. The Tucson Association of Realtors and assorted real-estate professionals around town remain the biggest donors, with TAR giving $135,276. Car dealer Jim Click kicked in $50K and the Southern Arizona Home Builders Association's total contribution has risen to $30K.

The campaign had spent $239,412, with most of the money moving through political consultants Zimmerman and Associates.

Wonks can look over the report themselves: PSFOct1.pdf

More reports to come later today. Track themselves yourself at the city's Web site.

We're looking forward to peering behind the curtain of the mysterious Tucson Vision Committee that has been running hit ads against Democratic incumbents. What do you bet that National Republican Committeeman Bruce Ash is mixed up with that one?
