BERNARDO STRUGGLES FOR FINANCIAL FOOTING; LOANS CAMPAIGN 57K
The Bernardo campaign is in deep trouble according to initial financial reports that we are learning about today. Bernardo has according to his wife about 69,000 in contributions for this filing period which includes a $57,520 loan to the campaign. Bernado's wife says the campaign has spent about 12k already.
Let me get this straight, the Bernardo campaign has raised and spent 12 thousand dollars and are completely broke, so they had to loan their campaign 57 thousand dollars.
By comparison, Mike Hein has raised over 80k and has about 206 people that have contributed to his campaign.
Hein might as well start measuring the carpeting and picking out what color drapes he would like in his new office. The race is over, Mike will continue to gain support, continue to raise money and his opponent has not even come out of the gate yet.
It's not about the money, it's about taking this race seriously and people investing in your campaign and taking you seriously. The people of Ulster County need leadership not someone that by July has not got their act together.
