Hey, Big Spender: Public Safety First Campaign Raises More Than $360K

Posted By on Thu, Oct 22, 2009 at 1:34 PM

The Public Safety First committee has spent more than $354,000 on the push to persuade voters to force the city to hire more cops and firefighters, at an estimated cost of $63 million a year once the program is fully implemented in five years.

The campaign had raised more than $360,000 as of Oct. 14, according to the latest campaign finance report, which was due today.

Auto dealer Jim Click has doubled down on his contributions to the campaign, giving $50,000 on Oct. 14. Click had already contributed $50,000 earlier this year.

The Tucson Association of Realtors, which has been the driving force behind the initiative, also contributed another $10,487. The International Association of Firefighters and the Tucson Police Officers Association each kicked in an additional $10,000.

Here's the report, if you feel wonky enough to review it: PublicSafetyFirstCampFin.pdf

More to come as reports are filed later today.
