Campaign Money

March 7, 2011

Since 2005, WUPC has had to raise campaign money to offset the large pocketbooks of our opposition.

We will always fully disclose who donates to our campaigns, how much they donate and most importantly how much our campaigns actually cost. We endorsed candidates for elected office in 2005, 2007, 2009 and do so now in 2011.

In the previous three election cycles we raised and spent approximately $31,800. The opposition out spent us two to one and they did so in just two elections: 2005 and 2009. $64,800.00 was spent by opposing candidates.

Our opponents have been 3 PACS called Citizens for Winfield, Winfield 4, and Tony For the People. All of these committees have since filed final reports with the state. Winfield United Political Committee (WUPC) is alive and well and will continue to support, recruit and endorse independent and  qualified people for our village government.
