Southern Durham Development gives $50K to developer's Super PAC

Posted by on Mon, Apr 30, 2012 at 3:40 PM

Southern Durham Development, which is behind the proposed 751 South development, has contributed more than $50,000 to The Durham Partnership for Progress, a Super PAC.

Here is the campaign finance filing, due today: Partnership_for_Progress_30April2012.pdf

As the Indy reported last week, DPP has ties to Southern Durham Development through Tyler Morris. He is a majority shareholder in Southern Durham Development and assistant treasurer of Durham Partnership for Progress.

DPP is behind a mailer supporting Durham County Commission candidates Joe Bowser, Brenda Howerton, Rickey Padgett and Michael Page. Bowser, Howerton and Page all voted to approve the controversial rezoning of 751 South, over the strenuous objections of many citizens and the Durham Planning Commission.

DPP spent $51,500 on the mailer, including $50,000 to Nexus Strategies, a political consulting group in Raleigh, and the Department of Marketing, which advises clients on branding, social media and website design.

Check back in Wednesday's edition of the Independent Weekly for more news about the Super PAC and the commissioners' race.
