As promised, here are the sortable lists of expenditures for the campaigns of Jerry Jennings and Corey Ellis. If you see anything interesting or notable, please share in the comments.
We posted sortable lists of campaign contributors yesterday. (JVG noticed that DiCarlo's (the strip club) had made a contribution.)
We were able to break out these lists thanks to a package of campaign finance data put together by NYPIRG. That package, which includes data for candidates from Albany County, is available for download (it's an xls file). Thanks to NYPIRG for its help.
We've also put together a few notes based on the lists. They're also after the jump.
To the data...
Data is from the first half of this year. The Jerry Jennings list comes from filings by the Jennings Primary campaign. The Corey Ellis list comes from filings by Friends of Corey Ellis. We did not include Republican Nathan Lebron -- he had three expenditures totaling almost $4,500 ($3,500 to the Albany County Republicans and the rest reimbursing himself for flier printing).
Also: These lists are embedded above in wide-screen, sortable lists
Jennings: Lake Research Partners, a firm based in Washington DC that specializes in polling, campaign consulting and "message development." ($23,540.40)
Ellis: Berlin Rosen, a firm in New York City that "specializes in public affairs campaign management for political, corporate and non-profit organizations." ($8,052.00)
The new downtown restaurant seems to be the place for campaign events. Both campaigns have had events there, spending almost $8,500 combined.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
