The recent campaign for Grapevine term limits was funded by dozens of Grapevine donors. Donations to the group “A Better Grapevine” were most often less than $100.00, and new campaign finance reports show we were outspent by the opposition six to one. Can’t recall a Grapevine municipal where nearly $50,000 total was spent.

The opposition campaign called itself a citizens group, but following the money shows thousands of dollars came from outside of Grapevine, including Dallas, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee. In fact 70 percent of their funds came from business, incumbents and people outside of Grapevine.

So pay attention, future Grapevine city council candidates, outside money is A-OK.
