From the Queens Campaigner:
[Kevin] Kim has raised $233,102 and spent $161,848 in the race, according to city Campaign Finance Board figures. [Paul] Vallone, son of former Council Speaker Peter Vallone and brother of Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria), has raised the second-highest amount in the race with $135,526 and spent $88,795.
Vallone’s contributions were a mixture of large and small donations.
He received $3,000 from Astoria’s Michael Partridge Realty Corp. and Waste Management in Houston as well as $2,750 from his father Peter Vallone, the former Council speaker; an employee of Old Westbury-based Nash Builders real estate company; and homemakers from Manhattan, Jackson Heights and Lawrence, N.Y. Other contributors include his brother Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., the president of Bayside’s Helms Bros. Automobile, attorneys from Mattone & McCabe, the Steamfitters Local 638 union, the Sheet Metal Workers 28 union, actor Tony LoBianco and CB 7 Vice Chairman Chuck Apelian. Apelian is also his campaign manager.
Wow, a $3000 campaign contribution from Waste Management on top of $1M in lobbying fees to get them an unnecessary truck contract with the City. Amazing!
