Spending Campaign Cash:

During this period FBU spent $35,300 although some were in January and should have been reported in a 30 day out report. They paid $23,800 to The Wright Touch for printing of the Voters Guide. The actual printer, according to the Union Stamp, Local Union printer #43 is Aspen Imaging DBA Signature. Probably The Wright Touch hired out the actual printing.

FBU's report claims to be supporting various candidates such as Beto O'Rourke and others yet there are just a few expenditures for various candidates such as Lesley Briones, Sonia Rah, and Neeta Sane. The complete list of expenditures is below:
