Show us the money, honey. Moolah is the mother’s milk of political campaigns. Nothing like a little milk and honey, right? Democratic mayoral candidate Mary-Jane Foster has launched her Facebook page with an appeal to click her contribution website. Mayor Bill Finch, Joe Ganim and Howard Gardner also have loaded donation sites. East End Democratic Town Committee member Charlie Coviello says he expects to load a donation page soon.
Foster, who resides in a waterfront home in Black Rock, is framing her campaign peeps as the Davids against Goliath.
I am up against two candidates who have access to big money and want to squash competition, while we are the little guys, the Davids against Goliath. We need to do this. Every dollar counts. Please share this link, and contribute for a better Bridgeport.
OIB embraces an egalitarian approach to promoting the donation pages of candidates. It also provides insight into what candidate sites receive the most clickthroughs. After all, it’s all about the clicks, right?

All of the positioning for money is leading to a potential September Democratic primary. Finch is the odds-on-favorite for the July endorsement by the Democratic Town Committee, but Ganim’s in the mix too. To qualify for the September ballot, challengers to the endorsed candidate must secure roughly 2000 certified signatures from party enrolled.
