Sept. 15, 2009 Staff Report
Jimmy Van Bramer’s and Deidre Feerick’s volunteers were out in force this morning, as they bombarded residents with campaign literature on the streets near the voting booths.
Both candidates had reason to be so determined, since it’s clear that either candidate could win the seat by a mere vote or two. And both have had put together very professional, well-funded campaigns.
By Sept. 4, Feerick had raised $166,000 in campaign funds and spent about $158,000 of it. Meanwhile, Van Bramer had generated $165,000 in funds and spent $91,000 at that date.
