Lopez Raises Almost $17,000

DEM LT. GOV. FORUMThe campaign finance report of Linda Lopez, a Democratic contender for lieutenant governor, finally appeared on the Secretary of State's Web site. She's the last of the light gov candidates to have her report posted.

Lopez raised $16,830 and spent $3,168. Her largest contribution by far was $7,000 from the Westland corporation, the California development company that wants to built a 55,000-acre residential/commercial/industrial project on Albuquerque's west side.

Lopez sponsored the bill this year that would have created tax increment development districts (TIDDs) for the proposal. That bill passed the Senate but unexpectedly died in the House on the last night of the session.
