ALCO Supe Nate Miley raised a whopping $163,000, but already spent most it

Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley

Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley raised more than $163,000 over the past four months, but has already spent a large portion with six weeks before the June 7 primary.

Miley who started the year with less cash than debt, quickly rebounded over the first four and a half months of 2016.

However, the campaign burned through money at a rapid clip, spending $133,251 during the same period.

The campaign’s cash reserves stand at $35,184 through April 23, according to his campaign finance report, with debts totaling $9,872.

Miley’s campaign coffers were stuffed largely through local labor unions and several organizations that have done business with the county in the past, including Paramedics, Plus and Alecto Healthcare, which operates St. Rose Hospital in Hayward.

Several pro-landlord groups also poured large amounts of donations to Miley’s campaign, including $7,500 from the political arm of the powerful California Apartment Association.

In addition, to paying consultants and staff, one of the largest expenditures was nearly $30,000 to the Claremont Club for a fundraiser.

Although, Miley greatly outpaced the fundraising performance of his opponent, Bryan Parker, who raised $95,000 since the start of the year, the challenger still maintains a large lead in cash on hand. According to campaign finance reports, Parker holds almost $100,000 in available cash.

    Nate Miley and Sheldon Silver, in other words the parasite who until recently was one of the very most powerful people in New York state government, are very similar.

    More specifically, both are total phonies and extreme con men who built their careers on pretending to be great liberals and wonderful humanitarians, and while in reality being totally committed to scamming and ripping off the public.

    In fact, the only major difference between Silver and Miley was that Silver was one of the very biggest and most powerful sharks in that cesspool of sleaze, and while Miley, and on the other hand, and although also a shark, sleazeball, parasite, and con man, obviously is not as big and powerful as Silver was.

    To sum up, the majority of politicians are not part of a legitimate government, but instead are part of a sleazy organized crime ring that pretends to be a legitimate government, and both Nate Miley and Sheldon Silver are two of the very most extreme examples of that.

    In regard to the election campaign contributions Miley has received, how much of it has been from owners of medical marijuana businesses and their lawyers and other associates, etc???

    Since a lot of people consider large election campaign contributions to be nothing but lightly disguised bribes, therefore some of the people opposed to AC having medical marijuana clinics (however Miley was strongly in favor of AC having medical marijuana clinics) asked that our local politicians refuse to accept election campaign contributions from those involved in the medical marijuana business. However since Miley is such an extreme case of the very finest and highest in ethics, honesty, integrity, judgment, and intelligence, therefore I see absolutely no reason he should be prohibited from accepting money from anybody, since he is such an extremely wonderful person, that therefore it is totally ridiculous that he could be bribed – or even that his judgment and decisions could be subconsciously influenced based on who gave him money.

    Concerning the comment of 6:48, how dare you hint, or in fact even quietly think to yourself, that Nate Miley is for sale to the highest bidder. In other words if you had been at public meetings at which Miley was present, you would realize that he is one of the very finest, most ethical, most intelligent, and all around most wonderful people and public officials to be found anywhere, AND THEREFORE WE ARE EXTREMELY LUCKY TO HAVE HIM – AND JUST IN CASE YOU HAD NOT ON YOUR OWN REALIZED THAT, HE WOULD HAVE REPEATEDLY INFORMED YOU OF SUCH.

    For instance, and as example of his “ethics,” we know he would never allow any situations in which his adult children would get well paying jobs on the Alameda County payroll that they were totally unqualified for.

    And we also know he would never rant and rave and yell and scream like a totally out of control maniac if someone committed the “crime” of expressing an opinion that was contrary to Miley's own opinion on the subject.

    So therefore, and since he is such an extremely fine and wonderful person and public official, the next time I see him I am going to get down on my hands and knees and kiss his feet.


  4. Well, at least now we know how he is going to vote on everything. Lots of favors to pay back.
