NUMBER 42 - MARCH 18, 2019

IT'S ELECTION TIME IN MIAMI SHORES, AND OUT OF THE BOX COMES CHRISTIAN ULVERT WITH AN INITIAL CAMPAIGN REPORT OF $21,440 IN DONATIONS, INCLUDING SOME FROM MIAMI'S USUAL SUSPECTS

While elections for the Village Council of Miami Shores can seem spirited, they are in relation to the free-for-all's of their big city neighbors, where big money from developers, attorneys, lobbyists and other monied interests flows into campaign accounts like sea level rise on a King High Tide, they are actually small time affairs where the reports of recent campaigns reveal that only two candidates in 2015 and 2017 raised eye raising money; Steven Zelkowitz raised $37,655.10 in 2015, and Mac Glinn raised $29,174.99 in 2015, and $28,220.00 in 2017.

Most candidate for Village Council raise anywhere fro $1,000 to $3,000 at the low end to maybe $8,000-$9,000 from their family, friends and neighbors, and if they have the money, a big loan from themselves.

This year's campaign has so far only had one candidate revealing the ability to raise big bucks, and that candidate, to no one's surprise is  political operative Christian Ulvert.

In his first report, he's raised $21,440.  In second place, is Alice Burch who reported $200, and in third place is Julio Martinez with $100.

While the election is in April, there's still time in the next couple weeks to see whether any of the other candidates show up with deep pocket donor support, and of course, it will be interesting to see how many other politicians from other communities and political operatives decides to give him money.

The one thing I do know is that whenever you see the vampires like Ron Book start showing up as a donor in Village campaign, somebody better go out and buy new chains for the vault where the blood is kept.
