Answers: These are real answers – look ’em up. 
Question 1: d
Question 2: d
Question 3: a
Question 4: a
 
So, why couldn’t Davis raise even $1,000 from District 6 residents? And, if he is so active and in tune with the community, why could he only get eight District residents to contribute to his candidacy? If half his funds came from Dereck Davis/Justin Ross and the other half came from Union PACs, who would Davis have been working for had he been elected in 2010? 
 
Something to think about, and maybe something to ask before September 20 too.

  1. In my research regarding the the 2010 campaign contributions. These are the official numbers and can be found on the link below the table. It’s interesting that not very many individuals who live in District 6 contributed to Davis’s campaign.

    The greatest strength Davis has is appearing as though he has more of the District 6 support prior to an election then Arthur Turner. The endorsement of County Executive Baker is surprising, he doesn’t live in the district and he is still but one vote even if he did. This can sway people, especially the undecided, which is what we saw last year in the 2010 results. Perception is a very powerful hallucinogen, while fact is a sobering reality. Know the facts, and reseach yourself. To learn more about Arthur Turner and why he is the best fit and most qualified to fill the position of County Council District 6, please visit http://www.votearthurturner.com and remember to vote for Arthur Turner for County Council District 6 in the Special Election on September 20, 2011. Having more then 20 years of “Leading” Community Service speaks volumes.

    • Unfortunatly the formating on WordPress doesn’t go well with the table I posted. This link however still works and will take you the States Election Board where you can enter in a candidates name under “Advanced Search”. Pull up the Excel spreadsheet and compare the numbers.

  2. Wow when are we PG residents going to wake up and say enough is enough with “pay for play”. It’s time that we stand up and start the Tunisian revolution here. (one thing is that the author should link or state references)
