City Council Election Quiz - Part 2

This is Part 2 of our Richardson City Council Election Quiz. (Part 1 can be found here.) There is only one question in Part 2.

The Dallas Morning News Voter Guide asked the candidates this question: "Who are your top three contributors?" The candidates' answers are below.

Question: Which answer(s) sounds less like a champion of open and transparent government and more like someone using legalisms to avoid being transparent and open with the voters?

  • William Gordon: I report all campaign financing in accordance with state law, and will file my first report next week; any information I have at this time would be incomplete.
  • Bob Townsend: Richardson Firefighters Association, Richard McLarnon, Felix Chen
  • John A. DeMattia: The Richardson Citizens Alliance, my wife and myself,
  • Mark Solomon: Mark Solomon (me), Richardson Firefighter Association, Felix Chen
  • Laura Maczka: Richardson Fire Fighters Association, MetroTex Association of Realtors, Sam Yang
  • Karl Voigtsberger: Richardson Citizens Alliance
  • Kendal Hartley: Metro Tex Association of Realtors, F. Chen, M. Bailey
  • Dennis Stewart: Campaign funding is on-going and will be listed on the Campaign Finance Report to be filed April 14, 2011
  • Diana Clawson: Richardson Protection Alliance
  • Amir Omar: Richardson Fire Fighters PAC, Robert Allen, Dr. Haroon Rasheed

Hint: There is more than a little irony associated with one of the answers considered correct.
