Re: Sleep Train arena fighting to add entertainment acts
A local petition drive manager says she received a $25,000 check in June from a Tulare-based political operative to put Sacramento's arena subsidy on the June ballot – but the check appears not to have been reported, as required, to state and city authorities.
The original donor or donors remain a mystery.
No campaign committee or candidate registered with the city of Sacramento reported paying the Tulare group, Olson Campaigns in June, records show.
If Olson is supporting the signature effort on its own, the firm would have been required to form a political committee in support of the arena ballot measure and also report the $25,000 expense in finance disclosure statements that were due by the end of July, said City Clerk Shirley Concolino. Olson has not filed any documentation with the city, records show.
