Election financing Math proves a little less complicated in Port Edward

As we outlined on the blog earlier, Elections BC has released the financial statements from those that sought office in the 2014 Municipal election campaign. A data base that offers up campaign contributions and expenses for all of the candidates province wide.

And while our Prince Rupert review featured a range of contributions and expenses for the 2014 municipal campaign, things it seems are just a little less complicated in Port Edward, where there is no lengthy list of contributors, nor great amounts of money spent put forward when it came to expenses.

If Prince Rupert's campaign offered glimpses of the North Coast version of machine like politics, it was a much more relaxed effort down the road.

As the 2 candidates for Mayor and eight seeking council office had no need to call in the accountants to keep track of the accounts payable and receivables. For the most part, the 2014 campaign in Port Edward was a self financing effort of pragmatic spending, no large sums of money collected, and equally small amount of money spent.
