EDITOR'S NOTE: An earlier version indicated The Oaks still had a project pending at City Hall. However, Shea Homes has withdrawn its development proposal which included continued operations of The Oaks equestrian facility.
Councilman Sam Allevato took in $16,827 in donations this latest reporting period that ended Sept. 30.
So far, he’s spent $16,379 – although he has $4,905 in unpaid bills. But because he had cash on hand from previous elections, he’s still flush with $6,780 in cash.
Among his donors are:
- Three members of the Brad Gates family, for a total of $600
- Former councilman and mayor Tom Hribar and his wife, for $500
- Former councilman and mayor Joe Soto for $250
- Rancho Sierra Vista Corp. for $250
- Linda Grady, farm manager for The Oaks, which had a development proposal before the city, for $125 (Allevato voted against the proposal making the November ballot.)
- Four people connected with Rancho Mission Viejo, for $900
- Two people connected with Sycamore Trails Stables, for $500
Among his expenditures, he has spent his money on office supplies, consultants and to participate on three slate cards
