ocpf reportI wasted far too much time this morning looking at campaign finance reports even though expenditures on a poll most likely would not have shown up yet. Something that did stand out, though, was the July 9 $200 donation to Mayor Warren’s campaign from Alan Schlesinger, attorney to Austin Street Partners.

Now, Schlesinger has been around Newton forever and has given money previously (including to Warren in December, which I would also question) — pretty much to candidates for statewide office. Still, for the sake of appearances, why would he give money now, when the most controversial development in quite some time — which he represents — is before the board and not at all a certainty to pass?
