So, as it turns out, the Homebuilders think that they have met their obligation for paying the $100,000 they owe for getting a deal on the transportation plan. They decided to pay their debt through collecting their own signatures and giving $27,000 to cover the balance.
However, the Governor's people don't see it the same way. Asking for the cash, instead of more signatures. According to the story:
"Tom Ziemba, the campaign consultant, criticized Wilhelm's decision to do her own petition circulating. Ziemba said the campaign needs financial support, not signatures."
It doesn't take a genius to figure this one out. Just take a look at their latest finance report. Since Ziemba is such a unique name, let's assume he is the proprieter of ZIEMBA WAID public affairs to whom the committee owes over $82,000.
No wonder why they would prefer straight cash.
