Assemblywoman Alyson Huber, D-El Dorado Hills, who recently was re-elected to California’s 10th Assembly District, raised $1,296,575 during the campaign filing period that ended Oct. 27. Huber’s totals overshadowed her opponent, former Lodi mayor Jack Sieglock, who raised $130,675 during the same period.

The bulk of Huber’s donations came from Democratic committees, fellow candidates and unions, while Sieglock received contributions from developers, residents and local businesses. Although the candidates did not share much common ground in regards to their political opinions, they did share a donor. Pacific Coast Producers Political Action Committee donated to both Huber and Sieglock.

    Last time I checked corporations, PACs and political committees don't vote, individual people do. With that said I think the bulk of Alysons donations came from groups that she will generally support. Namely public employees and unions. Public employees and union workers will continue to vote for things, propositions and canditates, that protect their well being, i.e. compensation packages. Most people will vote for or support something that doesn't cost them anything. It will only change once we are flat out broke. That reality train is coming down the track real fast. Once the money really runs out it won't matter who is in office. The solution to the problem is simple but comes with pain and sacrifice, by all. So far in this state and country we are still looking for a simple fix.

    And the Conservative dominated Supreme Court ruled this year that corporations are considered "individuals" for campaign donation purposes. Sorry Mr. Henry, just not true.

    I agree that Mr. Sieglock was considered not worth the cash outlay by the Repubs.

    Another aspect of political life that I despise...eliminate the PACs, campaign committees and companies and then consider just the individuals who dipped into their personal pockets for a donation and you get a different story. Huber---11 donors for $1,700; Sieglock---87 donors for $58,275. Just goes to prove that an incumbent has an automatic advantage in fund raising.

    Well, it looks like the various Democratic committees came through for Huber and the Republican party thumbed its nose at Sieglock.
