Win River Casino Tribe Flexes It's WALLET in Political Race in Redding

  Patrick Jones has landed another big campaign donation in his race to unseat Shasta County District 4 Supervisor Steve Morgan.

A former Redding mayor, Jones earlier this week received $20,000 from Win-River Casino and the Redding Rancheria. It comes about a week after he got $100,000 from former Shasta County winery owner Reverge Anselmo — believed to be the largest single campaign donation ever in local politics.

Jones sees Win-River Casino’s plan to relocate to freeway frontage property just south of Redding as an issue in District 4, despite the fact the project site is not in the district.

MORGAN's Statement:

I have always run community-based campaigns because I am here to represent my community. Period. I will not criticize my opponent because that's not who I am, but the people of Shasta County and my District know that I am always accountable to them, I'm there to represent them, and I'm excited to ask for their vote this November,” Morgan wrote.
