Ripon Bulletin - - Front Page - DEN­NIS WY­ATT Edi­tor

The big­gest sin­gle do­na­tion in Man­teca’s his­tory was made this month by the Pun­jabi-Amer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion of Man­teca to the re-elec­tion cam­paign of Mayor Steve DeBrum. The $5,000 do­na­tion tops the pre­vi­ous record of $4,000 the same group gave to Debby Moor­head in her un­suc­cess­ful run for mayor in 2010 against then in­cum­bent Wil­lie Weather­ford.

Un­der new re­port­ing laws that re­quire do­na­tions of $1,000 or more to be filed within 24 hours fol­low­ing the end of the first cam­paign re­port­ing pe­riod on June 30, DeBrum also re­ceived $2,000 from Man­teca Trailer and Mo­torhome as well as $1,000 apiece from the Real Es­tate Store/

Do­minica Fo­caracci and

Port Freight. That brings

DeBrum’s cam­paign do­na­tions so far to $24,249.

His chal­lenger Ben Cantu has re­ported an ad­di­tional do­na­tion of $1,200 from Pe­dro Oropeza. Cantu has now raised con­tri­bu­tions — mon­e­tary and in kind — of at least $13.275.

Coun­cil­man Mike Morowit picked up an­other $3,000 — $2,000 from the Pun­jabiAmer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion of Man­teca and $1,000 from Shin­ing Star Trans­porta­tion. Morowit’s run­ning to­tal is now over $12,700.

Jose Nuno also re­ceived $2,000 from the Pun­jabi-Amer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion of Man­teca. He

has sur­passed $24,000 in do­na­tions.

Nei­ther David Bre­it­en­bucher nor Chris Silva re­ceived do­na­tions of $1,000 or more that would re­quire a re­port to be made within 24 hours.
