Is outside money influencing our City Council race?
If you reviewed the campaign finances of Bill Moss through Friday March 7 as filed at the City Clerk’s office, you would find that his contributions include:
Thousands of dollars from multiple realtor Political Action Committees in Tallahassee and Orlando
Thousands of dollars from SW Florida RE developers and their consultants and lawyers
Thousands of dollars from non-City voters and non-City of Naples residents
You can read about this PAC here. It describes itself this way:
“In politics, money talks, and Florida Realtors PAC gives us a voice. When Realtors speak through Florida Realtors PAC, Tallahassee listens. And the more money Florida Realtors PAC raises, the louder we speak.” (accessed March 14, 2019 at https://pac.floridarealtors.org/about-florida-realtors-pac/)
