Campaign finance update for Chattanooga's District 6
In an effort to provide Chattanooga's 6th Council District voters with the most information possible regarding the six candidates, I have attempted to locate campaign finance disclosure documents that each is required to file with both state and county election commissions.
Unfortunately, these documents are not yet available, because the deadline to turn them in isn't until January 31 — less than a week before the election, which is on February 5. (Thanks to Angela Tant for the tip.)
I feel it is always important to follow the money (as much as possible/practical) in any election, in order to identify any potentially concerning donors.
In the days leading up to the election, I will locate and post anything that is available along these lines.
In other District 6 election news, I have heard from several people who are becoming involved in a campaign. This is excellent. I am of course remaining neutral in this race, but I am glad to see that the citizens of this district are paying attention.
Who has heard the candidates on WGOW? I know that each was scheduled to appear sometime within the last week or so. I am curious as to how those sessions went.
