Campaign finance reports available online

MARK SCHUMANN

Now that wealthy Indian River Shores interests have stepped up fundraising efforts for Vero Beach City Council candidate Laura Moss, members of the public may be interested in knowing from whom the candidates are receiving their campaign contributions.  That information is available online at the City’s website, www.covb.org.

Candidates Sharon Gorry, Laura Moss, Randy Old and Tony Young qualified early, and so were required to file campaign treasurers’ reports through August 31. They, along with newly qualified candidates Lange Sykes and Norman Wells, will next file finance reports on October 10.

Moss trails in fundraising with $4,185 received through the end of August, including $500 from herself, $500 from her husband, $300 from Pilar Turner, and $100 from Indian River Shores Vice Mayor Gerry Weick. Through August 31, Vice Mayor Randy Old was leading in campaign contribution receipts with a total of $27,550.  Gorry reported $4,903 in contributions, with Young having received $15,320 toward his campaign.

  1. After looking at the available finance reports ,I was surprised to see that Glenn Heran will serve as Norman Wells treasurer . When I think of Glenn Heran I think of his position on short term rentals. My understanding of his position on this subject is he wants no restrictions on short term rentals,or at least very, very few. His stance on this issue is the direct opposite of most residents of the city. The current city council has taken the position that short term rentals in certain residential areas are not in the best interest of city residents, this after many residents have come forward with the abuses that sometime occur with these type rentals. I hope Mr Wells does not hold the same views as his campaign treasurer.
