Citizen for a Better East County CBEC

East County PAC Agrees to Quit Sending Mailers Decried by Dems as Misleading

The donors to the committee:

On October 5, “San Diegans Against Hate” donated $2500.
This is an oddball donation, since the group is ostensibly aimed at electing officials who will oppose anti-Semitism in schools. They list six candidates on their “Allies” page, half of whom are running for school boards.
Assemblyman Christ Ward is listed and both Barbara Bry and Jordan Marks, who are running for Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk. Bry donated $500 to the group back in July. Although the County position is non-partisan, Marks is the GOP endorsed candidate and he’s also listed in the aforementioned flyer.

On September 30, Bennett for Lakeside School Board donated $2500
Jim Bennett is the endorsed candidate of the local GOP for the Lakeside School Board

On September 21, Wells for Mayor made an in-kind donation (signs) of $2955.23
Bill Wells is the County GOP endorsed candidate for Mayor of El Cajon

On September 12, the Republican Party of San Diego donated $12,500

Earlier in the year,

The Lincoln Club of San Diego donated $7000
The Republican Party of San Diego donated $3000

In 2021 much of the funding for CBEC came from the Hamann family & associates, an El Cajon building and property management company.
