Oaklandside published a report on Wednesday, Nov. 1 outlining the contributors who have given the largest amounts to the District Attorney Pamela Price recall campaign so far, and the biggest contributors to Price’s defense committee. You can read the list HERE.
The upshot so far, according to Oaklandside reporting:
“Save Alameda For Everyone,” filed disclosure papers on Nov. 1 revealing it has received 225 contributions totaling $212,000 from individual and corporate sources as of Sept. 30. Most contributions were in smaller amounts, ranging from $100 to $250, but the majority of the money raised came from a handful of major donors.
A second committee, “Reviving the Bay Area,” has disclosed spending over $338,000 on the recall.
Some of the biggest supporters of the recall are real estate companies and individuals who work in real estate development and management, and people with ties to the Bay Area tech industry.
Price established a campaign committee called “Protect the Win for Public Safety, Oppose the Recall of DA Price” in December with the help of a Sacramento-based consultant. So far, this committee has raised $15,000 from 15 individuals and organizations, according to its recent disclosure filing.
The biggest opponents of the recall include religious leaders and nonprofits that promote criminal justice reform.Who’s paying for the District Attorney Pamela Price recall campaign? by Darwin BondGraham and Eli Wolfe, Nov. 1, 2023
