Contribution of the Day: City Employees Against Licata

By Erica C. Barnett August 12, 2009

City of Seattle employees have contributed a total of $750 to defeat Nick Licata—not a lot, but worth noting in a city where the norm is for employees to pour money into longtime incumbents' campaign coffers. It's also worth noting that some of the anti-Licata money is coming from Team Nickels staffers.

City employees spending their hard-earned cash to defeat Licata include:  Tom Van Bronkhorst, an aide to city council member Jean Godden, who endorsed Licata's opponent Jessie Israel back in May ($400 to Israel); city sustainability office advisor Amanda Eichel ($50 to Israel); Nickels transportation advisor Andrew Glass Hastings ($50 to Israel); and Planning Commission director Barb Wilson ($150 to Licata opponent Martin Kaplan).
