Atherton civic center advisory measure backers raised $6,314

Totals are from forms filed two weeks before the election

Backers of the advisory measure regarding funding of Atherton's new civic center had spent a little under $6,000 two weeks before the election, forms filed with the city clerk show.

No forms were filed by opponents of the measure, who said they did not spend any money campaigning.

The measure was approved by a little over 61 percent of those voting, with slightly over 39 percent turnout for the all-mail election.

Donors included: the campaign account of Elizabeth Lewis, $1,367; John Worthing, $2,500; Eric Lane, $1,000; William Schroeder, $500; Sandra Ferrando, $200; James McLaughlin, $250; Diane Fisher, $100; Kim Young, $100 and Sandy Levinson, $99. All the individuals are from Atherton.

When the report was filed on May 23, a total of $5,872 had been spent, including $150 to rent a venue from the town of Atherton, plus spending on stamps, overnight delivery, food, lawn signs, printing and envelopes.
