The Prince George Citizen asks election candidates who’s backing their campaigns:
“Candidates were asked to impart campaign contributions of $1,000 or more from third parties, which excludes expenses financed by their businesses or spouses.
“Hall said he had six donations which met the criteria, but would not specify who they were from prior to the election.
“Zurowski said any disclosure prior to the election would be incomplete, and so wanted to wait until the full filing was made.”
On the editorial page, Neil Godbout criticizes the lack of disclosure:
“Either Hall or Zurowski will be sworn in as Prince George’s new mayor in December, yet Prince George residents won’t know until February, just a couple of months into their four-year mandate, who helped pay for their campaigns and how much they gave… It’s too bad the two mayoral candidates wouldn’t allow voters to decide how important or irrelevant that information about their campaigns was in deciding who they will choose.”
