In the last week of the campaign, Councilor Greg Schwartz received $3,000 from three members of the Kopelman family in Chestnut Hill and loaned his campaign $9,000. That’s just over half the money he raised in the entire campaign ($23,725).

Maybe the late fliers (discussed on the previous thread) weren’t due to bad luck or the challenges of coordinating a big mailing. Maybe the fliers were late because Councilor Schwartz made a last-ditch effort to save his campaign that came a couple of beats too late.
