Who funded your candidate: Belinda Ray

An in-depth look at who funded city council and school board candidates in Portland, Maine in 2018.

This is the second in a six-part series. Today we’re looking at city councilor and mayoral candidate Belinda Ray. We will also be looking at Nick Mavodones, Spencer Thibodeau, Jon Torsch, Emily Figdor, and Jeanne Swanton in this series.

The records below were submitted by the candidate to the Portland City Clerk, who does not require that information be submitted digitally. The Clerk retains the records on paper, so the only way to compile information is by taking scans/screenshots of each page. (Yes, it’s 2019 and we’re still pushing paper.)
