Proposition 2, the measure that would lessen restraints of some kinds of farm animals, including chickens, has so far drawn $7000 worth of support from Jerry Cesak, one-half of the famous Jeff & Jer radio team on Clear Channel’s Star 94.1 FM. According to the Prop 2 website, Cesak has also raised $10,879 from 136 people toward a goal of $15,000.
Other local media types backing their favorite causes this campaign season have included Clear Channel’s Roger Hedgecock, with $1000 to the Yes on 8 anti-gay-marriage forces, and $1500 against Prop 8 from Tim O’Brien, assistant news director at Bay City Television, owner of TV Channel 6. … Another San Diego County Indian tribe has joined the battle against Prop 5, the measure to reduce prison time for nonviolent drug offenders and boost treatment programs. The Barona Band of Mission Indians gave $25,000 last week. Two weeks earlier, the Sycuan tribe gave $175,000. On October 23, Qualcomm founder Irwin Mark Jacobs gave $15,000 to the pro–Prop 5 campaign. Earlier this year, he contributed $150,000 to help qualify the measure for the ballot.
