Financial Reports Are In……Sort Of

So I go on to Crystal’s website to look at the financial reports of the city council candidates (That were due in last week) and it was interesting what I found;

Mark Hoffman (running for his 9th or 10th or 11th term, whatever) still has yet to file a campaign finance report. John Budziszewski and Joe Selton combined have not raised ONE CENT from Crystal citizens. Their only “contribution” was from the Senate District 45 DFL (I thought these races were non-partisan).

Now think about that folks. Of the three incumbents running for re-election one hasn’t filed and two haven’t received a dime from their constituents. It’s almost funny!

Not surprisingly, Randy Rosario and Carla McPipe have filled out nothing. Kudos again to Karen Lincoln for working hard and campaigning like she wants this. More to come on this issue soon…….

    I’m guessing that like myself. The candidates that are not listed did not raise or spend more than the $750 limit or received contributions more than $100’s singly. Therefore did not submit. I contacted the county clerk and she indicated there was no need to file. Not surprising to see that you assumed I did not file, I guess that’s just how it goes.

      Randy- you seem to be all about excuses. That’s not what I look for in an elected official.

    Hoffman’s report is finally in, and he also failed to raise any money from anyone. Suspiciously, he didn’t have the same donation from the DFL that Joe and John have, even though he was also endorsed by them.

    Randy Rosario and Carla McPipe still don’t have reports posted. Has anyone actually met these two people, or do they only exist as yard signs located mostly outside their own wards?
