An interesting note on that $3K fundraising expense Pat Hume paid to Capital Campaigns: Capital Campaigns, almost exclusively, represents Democrats such as local Dems Darren Suen, and in the past Steve Ly, Gary Davis and Roger Dickinson.

So has Pat Hume switched teams?

Of course this will be his last term, there's nothing more for him to accomplish for the developers.

The Connector, so the developers can cash in on the rural land they bought cheap--check.

The Sphere of Influence, so the developers can cash in on the rural land outside of town they bought cheap and expand the city limits--check.

Get yourself appointed to the Board that will approve the Sphere of Influence--check.

Lower developer fees--check.

Rig the General Plan so developers can practically build whatever the market will support--check.

Someday those potholders are gonna be collector's items!

Hey D.J. so right you are! And let’s not forget the Hume “consanguinity” explanation regarding his extended family's interests in the transition zone. In this voter’s opinion, get out before the cash rolls in and Hume is held accountable for conflict of interests.
