Adam Paul Contributions from Developers

A review of the recent campaign finance disclosure reports indicate that the Adam Paul campaign will be the most expensive campaign in Lakewood history.  As expected the Adam Paul campaign is receiving a ton of money from the special interests who want to continue to have their access to the mayor’s office and the City largess.  In addition to the usual labor unions, realtors, lawyers and lobbyists there a lot of donations associated with development.  This is appropriate since the main issue is the out-of-control growth of the last couple years and now the purchase of the Denver Federal Center site.  The reports are difficult to fathom because most donations are made by individuals.  One has to do further research to discover what interests these people are associated with.  Therefore our investigation is naturally going to be incomplete here are a few of the contributions that appear to be associated with development interests.
