City Council Money Watch: Belk

The mid-year campaign reports are coming in, what do they show?

Charlotte city council at-large candidate Georgia Belk has already spent $15K, and still has $7K in the bank.

Notable donors to the Republican include Michael Kahn, owner of the Charlotte Checkers ($1000), uber developers John Crosland, Daniel Levine, and Afshin Ghazi ($500 each), and former county commissioner George Higgins ($100). Oh, and a ton of Belks. Coke bottling’s PAC also kicked in $500. Major expenses include $8000 to Victoria Smith, long-time manager for Pat McCrory’s campaigns, $1800 to Majority Strategies for campaign material, $1100 for a mailing, and $600 for Web site design.

    I thought Ghazi was broke?

    No, no, no — that is only if you have done work for him. There is always money for city council candidates.

    Seriously, Belk to should re-route that $500 to one of the unpaid Epicenter contractors.
