Mack-Rose and Richards Lead Fundraising in San Leandro School Board Races

In the race for the San Leandro School Board Area 1 seat, incumbent Rick Richards continues to lead in fundraising, reporting another $2,874 in contributions between October 1 and October 18, 2008. That brings Richards' total to $11,935 since July. Recent contributions included $2,000 from The Sentinels, a group of local business owners and $500 from Teamsters Local 853.

Richards' expenses included $4,893.57 to Handled With Care Mailing Services for campaign literature and mailings, $1,381.13 to In and Out Printing for campaign literature, $480 to KLS Productions to send email, and $305 to Alliance Campaign Strategies, a campaign consulting firm.

As of October 18, 2008, Richards had $1,290.61 in his campaign account and $4,000 in outstanding debt.

Hermy Almonte raised $2,520 between October 1 and October 18, 2008, just a few hundred less than Richards. Contributions included $2,000 from STAND, $200 from Elmer Embry and $100 from School Board trustee Stephen Cassidy.

Almonte's campaign spent $2,057.56 on mailing services from Handled With Care Mailing Services and $1,536.93 on campaign literature from Autumn Press.

At the end of the reporting period, Almonte had $559.88 in his campaign account and $500 in outstanding debt.

San Leandro School Board At-Large candidate Morgan Mack-Rose raised $4,185 between October 1 and October 18, 2008. Contributions to Mack-Rose's campaign included $800 from P.A.C.E., $500 each from Evelyn Gonzalez and Gordon Galvan, $300 from Isaac Medical, and $250 from Donna Reed.

Mack-Rose's campaign expenses included $3,550 for campaign literature from Autumn Press and $2,709 for mailing services from Handled With Care.

As of October 18, 2008, Mack-Rose had $4,923 in her campaign account and an outstanding debt of $550.

No financial disclosure for Ray Davis was on file for the most recent reporting period.

As of September 30, 2008, Davis had $422 in his campaign account and $695.73 in outstanding debt.

At-Large candidates for the San Leandro School Board Davis, Don Grundmann and Mark Tichy all filed paperwork indicating that they would neither raise nor spend more than $1,000. Tichy and Grundmann did not file financial disclosures since they have remained under the $1,000 limit.

The four candidates for the At-Large school board seat are vying to replace Stephen Cassidy, who is not seeking re-election. Cassidy has endorsed Mack-Rose to replace him.

The election will be held on November 4, 2008.
