Politics on Tap
State Senator Bill Dodd (D-Napa) was busy in Sonoma County in mid-February. He joined county supervisors Susan Gorin and David Rabbitt for a photo-op announcing a proposed toll for Highway 37 to help pay the staggering cost of fixing the North Bay corridor before climate change swamps it with rising sea levels – predicted to happen over the next 30 years. The Howard Jarvis folks in Sacramento think toll roads are OK as long as there is a parallel free road next to the toll highway for the poor folks.
First District Supervisor Election 2020In terms of campaign finances, while Gorin certainly has a lot more money in her campaign fund, Cook has been attracting some serious money in his bid to replace the incumbent, gathering in nearly $15,000 since January and another $6,000 in just two days after that. His largest donation to date was $3,190 from Robert Sanabria.
Gorin has been given $26,500 (roughly) since Jan. 1 and another $1,000 since Feb. 19. Her top angel was Barbara Banke, also donating $3,190.
For some obscure reason, $3,190 is the maximum donation allowed in California Supervisor races. Both have spent most of what they’ve taken in this election season on printed material and campaign managers.
