Santos Reports $1,000 Late Contribution from San Leandro Police

On October 27, 2010, San Leandro mayoral candidate Tony Santos reported a $1,000 contribution to his campaign from the San Leandro Police Officers Association (POA).

The San Leandro POA endorsed Joyce Starosciak for mayor early in August 2010 and weeks later gave a dual endorsement to Santos. Mike Sobek, President of the POA, was quoted in the San Leandro Times, "We still think Joyce will be a great choice for mayor and Tony has done well for us too....We felt that they (Santos, Starosciak, and Cassidy) are the top three candidates and we don’t want to see Stephen Cassidy elected."

During this election cycle, the San Leandro POA has contributed $1,000 to Starosciak, $2,000 to the campaign for Measure M, and $30,000 to the campaign for Measure Z.

Contributions of more than $1,000 are required to be reported within 24 hours in the weeks leading up to the election. The election will be held on November 2, 2010.
