The union-backed candidates vying for spots on the Jeffco school board are continuing to take in large contributions.
Four candidates are running for two open seats on Jeffco’s five-member school board.
Two of the candidates, Stephanie Schooley for District 3 and Joan Chávez-Lee for District 4, have been endorsed by the teachers union and have each received two $10,000 contributions from the union’s small donor committee.
According to reports filed Tuesday, the same two candidates also each received $3,750 from the Public Education Committee, a small donor committee affiliated with the Colorado Education Association.
And Schooley and Chávez-Lee have now used some of that money, about $14,800 each, on mailers.
Robert Applegate, who is challenging Schooley, almost doubled his contribution total to $1,810, but he remains far behind Schooley’s totals.
