BREAKING NEWS: Perata Campaign Is Nearly Broke

Oakland City Attorney John Russo is recommending that the city raise its individual campaign donation limits from $600 to $1,200 because there will be only one election this year. The city attorney’s recommendation also appears to be good news for ex-state Senator Don Perata, whose mayoral campaigned ended 2009 nearly broke after spending more than $100,000, primarily on expensive consultants. By contrast, his main competitor, Councilwoman Jean Quan, had nearly $60,000 in the bank as of January 1.
