In today’s article about campaign contributions to county executive candidates, I reported the Master Builders Association of Tacoma-Pierce County has spent nearly $49,000 on an independent campaign to support Pat McCarthy. That’s an old figure.
According to a report filed Monday with the state Public Disclosure Commission, the MBA and its allies (through a committee called Better Pierce County) have spent more than $85,000 for McCarthy.
Thanks to John Wyble of the Calvin Goings campaign for pointing it out. We’re running a correction in tomorrow’s paper.
Update: Some folks have asked where I got the $85,000 figure. Here’s a copy of the latest C6 report from Better Pierce County. It shows the cumulative total spent on McCarthy: $85,287.15.
