Car Talk With Donna

— The campaign committee of San Diego city councilwoman Donna Frye, who was easily reelected this June 6, ended the first half of the year with $8240 in the bank. On June 13, exactly a week after her victory, she picked up maximum campaign contributions from the likes of Mike Baker, vice president of Bob Baker's Auto Group; Joe Gardon, with Midway Jeep Chrysler; Dave Grundstrom, a car dealer with Marvin K. Brown Auto Center; John Hine Jr., with John Hine Pontiac; and Ed Witt, president of Witt Lincoln Mercury. One of Frye's close chums and biggest fund-raisers is lobbyist Janay Kruger, whose clients include Baker, Midway Jeep, and the Mission Valley Auto Circle, along with the San Diego Police Officers Association, Atlas Hotels, and the Olson Company. ... Even some of those not facing reelection this year reported activity in their campaign accounts. City councilman Brian Maienschein, who can't run for reelection due to term limits, transferred $18,822 of his cash into a Charles Schwab & Co. investment account. On June 30, the Maienschein campaign kitty, worth a total of $223,892 at the end of the July 31 reporting period, collected $17,257 in capital gains from Schwab. Under state law, the money may eventually be used by Maienschein to run for higher office, such as the assembly or senate, used for "office holder expenses," or given away to charities. Jim Madaffer, another termed-out councilmember, ended the first half of this year with $32,002 in the bank. Expenditures included $206 for a "staff retreat" and about $800 for cell phone service from Verizon Wireless.
