Marion S. Barry Jr., Mayor of Washington    1936-2014

 

Elected mayor four times

— in 1978, 1982, 1986 and 1994 —

Mr. Barry left the mayor’s office

for good early in 1999

and then worked

as an investment banker.

 

But politics

was never far from his mind.

 

In 2004 he was elected

to the District of Columbia Council

from a hard-pressed section

in Southeast Washington,

a district he represented

until his death

Michael Bloomberg

Now Biggest U.S. Political Spender

 

October 24, 2009

The New York Times

By REUTERS

 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has spent more of his own money in pursuit of public office than any other individual in U.S. history, spending $85 million as of Friday on his latest reelection campaign, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

Citing newly released campaign records, the Times said Bloomberg was on pace to spend between $110 and $140 million before the November 3 mayoral election. That means the self-made billionaire will have spent more than $250 million in his three bids for mayor of America's most fabled city.

In contrast, New Jersey Governor and former Goldman Sachs chairman Jon Corzine spent about $130 million in two races for governor and one for the U.S. Senate, the Times reported.

And publisher Steve Forces poured $114 million into two bids for president, it said.

Bloomberg's wealth, much of it from the Bloomberg LP media and information empire, is estimated at $16 billion. He has used it to establish what the Times called an "insurmountable financial dominance" in the race.

His opponent, William C Thompson, a Democrat, has spent just $6 million in the race. A Thompson campaign spokeswoman on Friday told the Times the mayor's spending was "obscene."

The bulk of Bloomberg's spending has gone into television, radio and Web advertising, it said.

But some of the money has trickled down to recession-hit small businesses, including Goodfellas Brick Over Pizza on Staten Island and in the Bronx. The Bloomberg campaign has so far forked over $8,892 for pizza at Goodfellas alone.

Thomson Reuters competes globally with Bloomberg in the delivery of multimedia news, data and enhanced information.
