Brazil, Fenty top list of council fund-raisers
(Published June 28, 2004)

Staff Writer

D.C. City Council members Harold Brazil and Adrian Fenty raised the most money during the past three months among all candidates so far running in the six city council primary races.

In fact, Brazil, D-At Large, and Fenty, D-Ward 4, brought in more money to their campaigns, a total of more than $200,000, between March and June than the rest of the other 33 candidates combined, based on financial disclosure reports that were due June 10 in the Office of Campaign Finance (OCF).

Not all candidates -- including incumbent Councilwoman Carol Schwartz, R-At Large, and former mayor Marion Barry, who is running for the Ward 8 seat -- filed reports of receipts and expenditures because they announced their candidacies too late to face the quarterly filing deadline.

The list of donors to Fenty’s and Brazil’s campaigns, similar in many respects to other candidates’ lists, is a who’s who of developers, business owners and the District’s political elite.

Since March, the Ratner family and their company RMS of Cleveland have donated a combined total of $5,000 to Brazil’s campaign. That family with their company Forest City Enterprises Inc. gave $2,500 to Fenty. Individuals and companies are allowed to give a maximum of $1,000 to at-large candidates and a maximum of $500 to ward campaigns.

Robert H. Smith of Arlington, an entrepreneur and philanthropist who gave $15 million to the University of Maryland to get its College Park business school named after him, gave Brazil $1,000. Also giving $1,000 was development firm Miller and Long of Bethesda. Dominic Antonelli, who owns parking garages all over the District, has given more than the allowable $1,000 to Brazil and has had the extra sent back, as did Greg W. Fazakerley, the chief executive officer of the Fazakerley Group.

Malpractice lawyer Jack Olender and his wife, Lovell, each gave $500 to Councilman Kevin P. Chavous’s campaign for re-election to represent Ward 7. Olender’s law firm also appeared on Brazil’s contributor list. Chavous’s campaign, with cash on hand of $72,000 at the end of this period, also took in money from Ashcraft and Gerel, the Alexandria law firm, which also supported Brazil. Chavous faces seven other candidates in the September Democratic primary. Ward 7 Democrats leader Vincent Gray, who has raised about $14,000, came in second to Chavous in fund-raising for the ward race.

Since mid-March, Brazil has gotten $250 from former Ward 4 councilwoman Charlene Drew Jarvis, as well as $100 from Stephen J. Trachtenberg, the president of George Washington University.

Fenty received $500 from Dream nightclub and $250 from Ernest Jarvis, the son of the council member Fenty unseated four years ago who is a senior associate with CB Richard Ellis, a D.C. real estate firm that recently went public. Daniel Solomon, chairman of DC Vote, an organization concerned with congressional voting rights for D.C. citizens, gave Fenty $500.

The D.C. law firm of Shaw Pittman and the global real estate firm of Trammell Crow, based in Texas, gave thousands of dollars to many candidates along with the attorneys and associates within the companies.

For a full list of people who, during the past three months, gave at least $250 to any candidate, and businesses or organizations who gave any money at all, look to the end of this article.

Brazil is running against five other Democrats in the primary on Sept. 14. Fenty so far faces no opposition in the Democratic primary or the general election.

"You’ve got to prepare for someone to get in the race," Fenty said in a telephone interview. "You’ve got to approach every race as if it’s contested – or else you get snake bitten."

Opponents and supporters wonder if a candidate is taking the race seriously, Fenty said, and raising money shows people he is serious.

"When you have never been re-elected, it’s not something you take lightly....We’re not taking anything for granted," Fenty said.

Fenty so far has raised $275,000, putting him in the stratosphere of fund-raising with other incumbents Jack Evans at $274,000 and Harold Brazil at nearly $400,000. All three campaigns have cash on hand at lower amounts because they have spent some of their receipts.

Sam Brooks, a Democrat from Upper Northwest who’s among several hopefuls running against Brazil in the primary for the an at-large council seat, has collected several $250 to $1,000 contributions. By June 10, he had out-raised and under-spent Kwame Brown, who is widely believed to be Brazil's major challenger, leaving Brooks with $23,000 to Brown’s $14,000. On June 15, Brooks’ campaign released numbers saying that it had raised about another $10,000 since the report. His total receipts put him near the $50,000 mark, further ahead than Fenty was at the same time four years ago when Fenty first ran.

"We’ve kind of had a good push toward the end there," Brooks said in an interview.

Among Brooks’ reported campaign expenditures is $482 spent on two tickets for Southwest Airlines to bring in a film crew from Los Angeles. Brooks said that the Internet ad he has on his web site was shot by the crew, but that he did much of his own editing afterward.

At about $3,500 for the shooting and editing "it was just a lot cheaper" than paying for nearby companies, Brooks said.

Democrat Jack Evans had $220,000 cash on hand — that’s total receipts less total expenses — in early June for his run to keep his Ward 2 seat. He is running unopposed in the September primary, but could face Republican Jesse Price and D.C. Statehood Green Party Candidate Jay Marx in November. Both are running unopposed in their primaries, but neither submitted financial disclosure statements for June.

Marx picked up his campaign declaration papers after the June 10 deadline and so does not need to file until August, and Price has checked the $500 exemption, meaning that he does not plan to raise or spend more than $500 during the entire campaign. Fourteen days before the primary, Marx will need to notarize and file a form stating that he did not go over the spending cap.

Although Evans’ campaign brought in only about $8,000 for the three months ending June 10, his list of contributors includes Elinor Bacon, who gave $350, and Jonathan J. Ledecky, who donated $500. Bacon was the head of the District’s National Capital Revitalization Corp. and worked with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s HOPE VI public housing projects. Ledecky once owned part of the Washington Capitals hockey franchise.

Evans' expenditures, at about $35,000 for the three-month period, included $525 for six $75 tickets given to campaign volunteers who attended an event sponsored by Washington Life magazine. The Men and Women of Substance and Style gala raised money for Hoop Dreams, a charitable program that helps inner-city kids, said John Ralls, Evans’ campaign manager.

"Jack was a, quote, man of substance and style this year," Ralls said. So, as a thank you, Ralls said, "we took (the volunteers) to that, and gave to Hoop Dreams as well."

The campaign also spent $528 for two bouquets of flowers that went to campaign staffer Jeff Travers and volunteer Patrice Miller. The flowers were a thank you "for their work on coordinating the May 20, 2004, campaign kickoff," said the disclosure report, which was more detailed than most candidates’ filings.

"I sent them each a big, nice, huge bouquet" for their work, Ralls said, even though Travers gets paid for his consultancy. The kickoff event with over 300 people "was a spectacular success," and Travers and Miller were instrumental, Ralls said, adding, "Jack was thrilled with the out-turn. It was the best event he’s ever had."

There’s no limit to what a campaign can pay or give to a volunteer, so long as the money spent is going toward political purposes, said Kathy S. Williams, the campaign finance office's general counsel. Keeping volunteers happy so that they get out and work for the candidate can fit within that definition, she said. She added that the OCF looks at all expenditures of all candidates to make sure the money is spent legally.

In the packed field to be the Ward 8 Democratic candidate — nine people are running — Councilwoman Sandy Allen has taken in a total of nearly $38,000 and has spent only about $2,000. She’s gotten financial help from former D.C. financial control board chairman Alice M. Rivlin, at $500, as well as D.C. "shadow" Sen. Paul Strauss. Suzanne J. Peck, the District’s chief technology officer, contributed $500. The city’s Unified Communications Center is being built in Ward 8.


The best-funded campaigns for D.C. City Council are raising hundreds of thousands of dollars from a variety of sources -- including individuals, businesses, political committees and political action committees (PACs).

Many of the campaign committees representing 35 declared candidates for council were required to submit by June 10 a "Report of Receipts and Expenditures" to the Office of Campaign Finance, detailing who gave money to the campaign and where it was spent over the past three months. The candidates are running for six seats on the council: two at-large seats and the seats in Wards 2, 4, 7, and 8.

The Common Denominator combed through the reports and has listed below all candidates who have picked up candidacy forms from the Board of Elections and Ethics. Listed as well are individuals who have given at least $250 to the campaigns and all businesses and committees who gave to campaigns, regardless of the amount. The contribution limit for at-large seats is $1,000 and for ward seats it is $500.

Many of the candidates running in the primaries on Sept. 14 were not required to file financial disclosure reports before the June 10 deadline because they declared their candidacy beyond the reporting period. Many candidates' campaign committees also haven’t filled out financial disclosure forms because they checked a box on their statement of organization at the Office of Campaign Finance that said they planned not to raise or spend more than $500 during the course of the campaign (the "$500 exemption"). Should these people get the necessary numbers of D.C. voters' signatures on their petitions for candidacy to be in the primary, they will have to submit a form 14 days before the primary certifying that they have not received or spent $500.
