OH County Councilman Contributes Thousands to Colleagues while Vying for Council President by Their Vote

Northeast Ohio Media Group: “Brady began laying the groundwork on Jan. 11 of this year, when records show his wife, Cleveland Councilwoman Dona Brady, gave him $20,000 through her own political committee.

“Since then, records show, Brady has given $2,000 to Councilman Anthony Hairston, and $1,000 each to Councilwoman Sunny Simon and Councilwoman-elect Shontel Brown. Brady’s wife gave another $500 to Hairston, who was appointed to fill an unexpired term in February.

“It’s not uncommon for council members to make contributions to each other’s campaign funds. But the contributions Brady has made this year are unusually large by County Council standards, and suggest he is trying to consolidate support among his colleagues.”
