If you are Tim Schofield raising money for your City Council campaign, apparently you also go to McDermott, Quilty, and Miller.
- William McDermott - $100 to the Committee to Elect Tim Schofield
- Dennis Quilty - $200 to the Committee to Elect Tim Schofield
- Stephen Miller - $200 to the Committee to Elect Tim Schofield
Former councilor Michael McCormack, a lawyer and lobbyist, said people who do business with the city have a good reason for giving. "These are people who have an interest in seeing the city economically strong and sound," he said. "They also want to be in a position to pick up the phone and call someone if they have a problem. Sometimes the operative word is access."The Schofield campaign did not respond to an email seeking comment on this issue.
"If you're the head of a significant company that does a significant amount of business in the city you want to know that you can pick up the phone and call the City Council president. Someone will listen and help."
