Who Is Funding Pima County Supervisor Candidates?

While Pima County administrator Chuck Huckelberry and Board of Supervisors’ Chair Sharon Bronson denied an elderly physically challenged member of the public easy access to meetings, other residents appear to have ready access to power.

“The hardest thing about any political campaign is how to win without proving that you are unworthy of winning.” ~ Adlai Stevenson

They say ‘money matters,’ and in the races for Pima County Board of Supervisors, big money is flowing from deep pockets to the campaign coffers of incumbents and the “establishment’s” anointed candidates; John Winchester and Steve Christy.

In the eighth poorest metropolitan area in the country, it is not surprising that deep pockets account for the majority of contributions made to the candidates.

The tables below contain contributions above $500 for the current candidates in all contested Pima County Board of Supervisors’ races. Check back next week for other races.
