The Vancouver Sun released a Metro Vancouver-wide database Friday that reveals campaign donors for mayors and councillors in the 2008 election. While the information has been available online for some time, obtaining it has been a bit of an ad-hoc affair, with each municipality handling the data differently and often publishing it in PDF form instead of a searchable database.
Today, we present New Westminster’s campaign donor information to you in an infographic, courtesy of Matthew Laird, who was a candidate in the 2008 election.
If this sort of thing interests you, you may want to check out Theresa McManus’s March 2009 blog post revealing some of the more unusual expenses and financial relationships that came to light in the 2008 election disclosure documentation.
The New Westminster 2008 election campaign financing information is also on the city’s website, organized by candidate.
