Council Campaign Funds Smokescreen
San Antonio makes sure it is extremely time-consuming to look up city hall campaign finance reports.
A private citizen named Jay Kumar decided to do something about it. He went through many of the reports from recent campaigns, and put the numbers in a searchable database. I have a link to the database on my website at bradmesser.com.
On his cover page, Mr. Kumar describes the situation well. Here are excerpts:
Bonnie Conner knew about this and did nothing. Carroll Schubert knows and does nothing. Ditto the mayor and other holdovers. Rather surprising how many of our local politicians aren't in the computer age, isn't it. In the near future I will report on which candidates filed the obscure handwritten reports because they were apparently unable to borrow a computer.
