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.
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.
