FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MICHAEL CORBIN CAMPAIGN FUNDED BY SPECIAL INTERESTS
Campaign Finance Reports Show Corbin Backed
By Car Lot Investor
In July of 2009, the citizens of Spring Lake fought against a used car lot being placed in front of their neighborhood. They took their pleas to the Shreveport City Council, where District D Councilman Bryan Wooley stood up for them- denying the zoning request that would have allowed the used car lot to be built.
Residents may have thought that the fight against the used car lot was over, but it has recently been discovered that Michael Corbin, who is seeking to replace Councilman Wooley, is being funded by the very person behind this car lot. Through a combination of corporations and family members, property owner James Ballangee has bankrolled nearly half of Corbin’s campaign for City Council.
Corbin’s opponent, Republican Deanna Candler, had the following to say about this revelation:
“The people of District D and especially those who live in Spring Lake Subdivision, deserve to know who is paying for Michael Corbin’s campaign. When a politician owes their election to special interests, the people that they are supposed to be serving are the ones that suffer.”
Copies of Michael Corbin’s Campaign Finance Reports have been attached to can be found here. Ballangee’s connections to the various LLCs can be checked through the Louisiana Secretary of State’s Website.
