Fletcher Campaign Receives Over $56,000 From Donors Outside of San Diego County and State

From March 18 to May 19 Nathan Fletcher raised a total of $302,866 in campaign donations, second only to Carl DeMaio, who raised $373,590.

Since Fletcher's announcement that he was jumping ship from the GOP, the two candidates have gone at each other. They have traded barbs at debates and traded first place in local polls.

However, one category that Fletcher is by far the winner is campaign contributions from donors who live outside of San Diego County. Out of the hundreds of thousands that Fletcher's campaign received this period, 19 percent ($56,379) came from donors outside of San Diego County, many from outside the State. On the other hand, DeMaio has only taken in $5,043 from donors outside the county, many of which have local connections to developers and other businesses.

It's not just the amount of money but the type of donor who contributed to Fletcher's run for mayor. His donors include a corporation communications officer from Facebook, $250; an employee for Oprah Winfrey's television network Harpo Industries, also $250; a managing director for Bain Capital (firm cofounded by Mitt Romney), $500; a student from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, $500; mayor of Tupelo, Mississippi, Jack Reed, $100, and a professor of economics at M.I.T. who also contributed $100. Even fashion designer Diane Von Furstenburg and her singer/filmmaker daughter Tatiana gave Fletcher $500 each.

Judging by the donations, it appears that Fletcher's jump from the GOP ship might have had some effect after all.

We are calling on all Mayoral candidates including Congressman Bob Filner (Federal), Assemblyman Fletcher (State), Dumanis (County), and Councilman DeMaio (City) to solve our Veterans Homelessness problem this Memorial Day weekend through bi-partisan cooperation and leadership.

http://tinyurl.com/20120526

Congressman Bob Filner knows how to bring new streams of Federal funding into San Diego. Including the new GI Bill so returning Veterans can go to college, and VASH vouchers to end Veterans Homelessness nation-wide by 2015.

The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). VA provides these services for participating Veterans at VA medical centers (VAMCs) and community-based outreach clinics.

What a wonderful idea: and once he's Mayor, Bob Filner could lead the way. Unlike the others, he has the interest in resolving homelessness and the federal expertise to get it done.
