Sharon Bulova, Teamster
The list of donors to campaigns in Fairfax County is a usual-suspects mix of developers, realtors, attorneys, government contractors, party PACs and community activists. That's why the $2,000 contribution to Supervisor Sharon Bulova (D-Braddock) from the International Brotherhood of Teamsters stands out.
She is the Fairfax Board's sole recipient of money directly from the 1.4 million-member union. (It also gave $6,500 to state Democratic PACs)
Bulova reminds us that she sits on the State Rail Advisory Board, which makes recommendations to the Commonwealth on funding of projects to enhance passenger and freight service for the public's benefit. The meetings in Richmond are attended by railroad officials and unions that represent their employees .
After one session, Bulova explained, "a very nice young man gave me his card and said if there was any way he could ever be helpful to let him know. So I followed up."
Campaign finance reports show that Bulova, who has raised $130,000 for a race with no significant opposition, also received $200 from an Ellen Hoffa of Fairfax.
No relation, Buolva said.
