American Property Management, which is owned by real-estate titan Joe Weston, has just given a $795.83 in-kind contribution to the Community to Recall Sam Adams, according to Orestar.
The contribution from American Property Management makes Weston the most prominent financial contributor so far to the recall campaign
Jasun Wurster of the campaign to recall Mayor Sam Adams says the in-kind contribution is for office space at 421 N. Broadway St. The recall campaign will have to pay $5 a month, Wurster says.
"We are really, really happy they have made it possible for us to have a campaign office," Wurster says.
The office will open Monday.
Calls to American Property Management have not yet been returned. But an associate of Weston's tells WW Thursday afternoon that while Weston respects the mayor, he also respects voters' rights.
Update at 4 pm: "I think the people have a right to vote again,"
Weston tells WW
. "The people weren't given the facts to begin with."
Weston has also signed the recall petition. "If you were an employer and a prospective employee did not state the truth in his application, would you say 'Well, it's OK, you already have the job?" Weston asks.
