Steve Ortega receives late contribution of
50 Grand from Hunt and Foster
In the January 2014 Campaign / Officeholder Report, former city representative and mayoral hopeful, disclosed that he received $50,000 from Woody Hunt and Paul Foster.
Conveniently, these contributions were made about a month after the mayoral runoff and the day after the post-election financial report was due.
DIEP speculates that Hunt and Foster waited to contribute to Ortega’s campaign to defray criticism on Ortega due to the Downtown ballpark debacle and association with the unpopular moguls.
Was Ortega told to spend as much as he wants and Foster and Hunt would reimburse the campaign after the fact?
