The Island: Decision 2010: The final countdown, November 1, 2010


Late-breaking news: Former Alameda Point developer SunCal Companies has spent tens of thousands of dollars to try to defeat four local candidates in Tuesday’s election, filings made with the City Clerk’s office on Thursday show. The company spent nearly $35,000 on a television ad and mailers to oppose Frank Matarrese’s mayoral run, and another $8,300 on mailers to oppose Jean Sweeney’s City Council candidacy. The company also spent about $3,500 apiece on mailers opposing Doug deHaan’s mayoral run and Beverly Johnson’s council candidacy. (The filings were made by Cal Land Ventures LLC, one of the developer’s myriad subsidiaries.)
