Michael Brown Needs More Money
Freshman Council member Michael A. Brown (I-At Large), who blanketed the city with campaign literature and inundated voters with automated calls to win his election, is holding a debt retirement party tonight at the home of BET chairman and CEO Debra Lee.
Brown, son of the late U.S. Secretary Commerce Ronald Brown, said all vendors have been paid, but he would like to pay his staff and himself. The most recent campaign finance records available online showed Brown spending more than $187,000 just before the November general election. There was still an outstanding loan of $27,856.
He said he is not sure how much more he spent by Election Day. "I want to clean up what little change is out," Brown said.
And he is concerned about campaign staff. "A lot of people are still out there looking for work. A lot of people have been put into the Obama resumé pile," Brown said.
