Many candidates have PAC's and ECO's that are committees that can collect any amount to supplement a campaign. The candidates are not suppose to have control or input in how PAC and ECO money is spent, but they do. Even though they deny they do.
The purpose of this ECO - Good Government Now - is for COUNTY races promoting County candidates (i.e. Lynda Bell) - as it says in its filing papers. I assume it is for Lynda Bell's campaign next year since Wendy Lobos heads it. She is Lynda's BFF.

The only trouble is, the ECO is sending out mailers NOW. No mailers have gone out for County races, it is too early. I think this ECO is being used for Mark Bell's campaign, against its stated purpose.
|Good Government Now's financial disclosure says it is sending out direct mailers when there are no county races at this time. Mark Bell is, however, sending out gobs of mailers for his Mayoral race.|
Lynda Bell is a driven woman on her husband's election, it is almost scary to see such a lust for power. She is using her position to push people to donate to her husband. I talked to someone who gave and he had no idea who or what Mark Bell represented. He only knew Lynda Bell wanted money.
