Money Watch: Trail Blazers, Nick Fish and Mississippi Studios in the MultCo Race

The Portland Trail Blazers, City Commissioner Nick Fish and Mississippi Studios are among the big names pouring money into the race for a Multnomah County Board of Commissioners seat representing North and Northeast Portland.

The latest round of campaign finance disclosures shows candidate Loretta Smith collecting $500 from Fish and $1,000 from the Trail Blazers.

As previously reported in WW, Smith—an aide to U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.)—also remains the favorite candidate of trade unions. This week she reported an additional $1,500 contribution from the Local 48 Electricians.

Meanwhile Smith's opponent in the race, Karol Collymore, claims a $370 contribution from Mississippi Productions Inc. A co-owner of that company, Jim Brunberg, is also listed as the manager of Mississippi Studios LLC, which owns the iconic North Portland music venue of the same name.
