Powell Takes on Hoffmann's Contributions

Former Neighborspac leader and one-time Rockville Mayor candidate Drew Powell has released an analysis of incumbent Mayor Susan Hoffmann's campaign contributions. Powell is concerned with development-related contributions and we have quibbled with him over that issue before. But it's hard to disagree with his conclusion that a great deal of Hoffmann's money has come from outside the city. Contributions to her challenger, Phyllis Marcuccio, have come almost entirely from inside the city. That fact is newsworthy. The City of Rockville's website has the original finance filings from Susan Hoffmann and Phyllis Marcuccio and we reprint Powell's analysis below.
