Are special interests trying to influence City Council race?

There’s a new, big money PAC funded by developers, builders, architects and realtors in Naples supporting the incumbent candidates – Barnett, McCleod, Seigel and Buxton – for City Council.

The PAC claims in its communications that it’s not affiliated with any candidate

But its legal papers state it was formed to support these candidates! To date it has raised $76,000 which is being spent in direct support of these incumbents.

What future ethics problems might this bring? What expectations might the PAC funders have?

The full details, documents in evidence and ethical significance of this development are here.
