There Doesn’t Appear to Be Any Let-up Whatsoever

Although the state Legislature is in recess until the beginning of January the quest for campaign contributions certainly isn’t.

Candidates seeking election to the Legislature and lawmakers seeking re-election or higher office have 22 fundraisers scheduled – so far – from October 27 through December 11.

That does not count two Nevada lawmakers — Assembly Majority Leader John Oceguera and Assembly member Lynn Stewart – who are holding a $1,000-a-head event and $500-a-person event, respectively.

The most costly event is $7,500 to travel to the Bandon Dunes golf resort in Oregon December 9, play a couple rounds with Sen. Ron Calderon, a Montebello Democrat, and return December 11.

  1. And, there won\’t be – not until those running for office are relieved of the torturous burden of having to spend extreme amounts of time and energy kissing up to potential donors. It\’s not the fault of the candidates, its the fault of the system and those who fight against reform. Let\’s not forget, relevance is measured under this system by how much money a candidate has raised, not by his/her actual positions on issues.
