The Coos County Alliance for Progress has donated $4,000 to Fred Messerle’s campaign. According to OreStar the alliance has receipted donations from all the usual suspects including Jon Barton, John Knutson, ORC and Al Pettit’s LKP Investments and curiously Kathy Erickson, former editor of The World and now field representative for Congressman Peter DeFazio.
So far the Alliance has receipted $14,300 but has not reported its outgoing donations. However, Messerle receipted the donation at his OreStar account yesterday.
ORC is the largest contributor so far with a contribution of $5,000 and Jordan Cove Energy has contributed $1,000. Until the treasurer, Jayson Wartik records the donations we will not be able to determine whether the alliance will be backing state and federal candidates as well or just local races.
