Local Campaign Finances

The City has an electronic system for reporting campaign finances on the city website. I found it quite interesting to look at DeMarcus' donations. 96 donations but 62 were from outside of Pleasanton. $7,125 from James Tong (the developer) and family and his business (has $1,000 from Landmark Exchange Management which is owned by Tong). Then thousands of additional dollars in donations from Tong's and Lin's business associates in Fremont and Hillsborough. Seventeen $1,000 donations. Not really a surprise I guess since DeMarcus works for Tong. They are really pushing to get her on council to stop the council from fighting the frivolous lawsuits that Tong/Lin keep filing so they can get their housing approved. One only needs to look at Dublin to see what they want to do in Pleasanton. A lot of that high-density housing in Dublin was done by Tong.
