ANDERSON WAY AHEAD IN SUPERVISOR RACE FUNDING
Anderson $368,000 vs $164,000 for Vaus
60 percent of Anderson’s contributions come from East County Community vs 32 percent for Vaus.
East County Republican Senator Joel Anderson (Ret.), candidate for San Diego County Supervisor District 2, has $367,910 “cash on hand” according to the July 31, 2019 campaign filing. These funds have been contributed from an astounding 563 donations with 59.87% from East County.
“I have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our support,” said Anderson. “Our endorsements, volunteers and contributors have shown that voters want to send a message Downtown, and want an East County representative fighting for us,” said Anderson
In contrast Anderson’s opponent, Poway Mayor Vaus, has received contributions from 454 individuals and has only $164,000 “cash on hand” after accounting for debts owed by Vaus according to campaign reports.
Downtown Special Interests represent 68 percent of Vaus contributions.
“His funding and endorsements have come predominantly from downtown business interests with no knowledge or stake in East County,” said Anderson. “What do these Downtown special interests want from him?”
