Image of voter putting ballot in ballot box.Money apparently mattered in recent school board campaigns in the state’s largest school districts, with the top fundraisers winning in seven of eight elections in Denver, Douglas and Jefferson counties.

Final campaign finance reports filed Thursday for school board candidates show Denver’s citywide at-large race may rank as the most expensive in the city’s history, with five candidates raising more than $267,000 in monetary support. In 2009, two at-large candidates reported raising nearly $259,000 while in 2007, three at-large candidates raised just over $255,000.

But Allegra “Happy” Haynes, who raised $234,972 of that high-dollar collective amount this year, did not set an individual record. She failed to beat the $240,605 garnered by at-large candidate Mary Seawell, the board’s current president, in 2009.

One development in the 2011 elections is how advocacy groups are directing their dollars. In 2009, for example, Seawell received just $310.15 in non-monetary or “in-kind” donations. This year, Haynes received $56,397 in non-monetary contributions, including more than $43,000 from Stand for Children in the form of canvassing help and staff support.

Details by candidate

Similarly, southeast Denver candidate Emily Sirota, one of four DPS candidates to raise and spend more than $100,000, lists total support from the Denver Classroom Teachers Association of $71,240 – but that’s broken into $47,500 in direct support and $23,740 in canvassing and phone help. In 2009, the DCTA favored direct support of its endorsed candidates.

Sirota, who saw a burst of national media interest in her race in the closing weeks, also benefited from a surge of out-of-state money. A total of 82 of her 134 contributions in the final reporting period – 61 percent – came from outside Colorado, including 24 separate contributors from California.

Candidates filed three finance reports for the Nov. 1 election. The first covered contributions and expenditures between Oct. 28, 2010 and Oct. 6, 2011 while the second is from Oct. 7, 2011 through Oct. 23, 2011. The third, and final, reporting period covers Oct. 24, 2011 to Nov. 26, 2011.

Wide gaps in fundraising between candidates evident in the initial filings were little changed in Thursday’s reports.

Wide gaps in fundraising between candidates across districts

For her citywide Denver seat, Haynes raised more than 12 times as much money as her closest opponent. In southeast Denver, winning candidate Anne Rowe raised $90,000 more than Sirota and outspent her by nearly as much. In northwest Denver, candidate Jennifer Draper Carson raised nearly three times as much as her opponent, Arturo Jimenez, and outspent him by more than $133,000.

But Draper Carson lost, the only board race in the state’s three largest districts where more money did not signal victory. Jimenez, an incumbent with deep roots in the northwest community, eked out a win by 142 votes.

In Jefferson County, the state’s largest district, election victors Lesley Dahlkemper and Jill Fellman raised at least four times the contributions of their opponents, Jim Powers and Preston Branaugh, respectively, who campaigned as “the dads.”

And in Douglas County, where the dollars raised per race were lower than elsewhere, the gaps were still evident. In two of the three races, the winners outspent their opponents by a factor of six.

However much it may help, money is not the only factor in the outcome of a race.

In Douglas County, the three winning candidates were openly endorsed by the Republican Party, a backing likely viewed as favorable in one of Colorado’s most conservative counties.

In Denver, Haynes was undoubtedly aided by the name recognition she gained as a former City Council president.

And Jeffco’s Dahlkemper and Fellman announced their candidacies and began fund-raising months ahead of their opponents, who waited until the last day to register their campaigns.

Endorsements and ‘hidden’ funding in elections

Not all the money that may help a candidate winds up on their finance reports. That includes campaigning done by 527 political committees and independent expenditure committees, which don’t coordinate with candidates and file separately under different deadlines. Both types of committees were active this year in Denver and Jeffco board elections.

In Jefferson County, the district teachers’ union and the statewide Colorado Education Association combined to give $189,500 to Kids Come First, an independent expenditure committee that spent nearly $180,000 on mailers, automated phone calls or “robocalls” and canvassing in support of Fellman and Dahlkemper, who won.

In Denver, an independent expenditure committee called Working America campaigned in support of Jimenez and Sirota, who were endorsed by the Denver teachers’ union. Working America raised and spent $4,079.48, with all contributions coming from Working America, which describes itself as a community affiliate of the AFL-CIO in Washington D.C.

Also in Denver, the district teachers’ union and the statewide Colorado Education Association were the sole donors to Delta 4.0, a 527 political organization that supported Jimenez, who won, and Sirota, who lost. The unions contributed $86,000, all of which was spent during the reporting period.

Another type of group that became involved in the Denver and Jeffco elections are non-profits, known as 501(c)(4)s, which are allowed to participate in elections as long as that’s not their primary purpose. But they don’t have to disclose their donors.

In Denver, the group Great Schools for Great Kids, a non-profit that incorporated in Colorado in March, is listed as contributing a total of $34,231.75 in non-monetary contributions to Haynes and Rowe, who won, and to Draper Carson, who lost. The group gave the donations, mostly in the form of staff support, to the candidates, who listed the gifts on their finance reports.

But the same candidates do not list any support from another recently formed non-profit, Latinos for Education Reform, which took out ads in community newspapers to criticize Jimenez and to list “our candidates” as Haynes, Rowe and Draper Carson. That’s likely because the group did not directly donate to their campaign committees.

Similarly, in Jefferson County, the group Colorado Women’s Alliance, a non-profit incorporating in Colorado in April, mailed out fliers touting candidates Branaugh and Powers while Jefferson County Students First Action, which incorporated in January, purchased Google ads supporting them. Neither non-profit is listed on the candidates’ financial reports. Both men lost.

Across the three districts, no group endorsement seemed to carry a guarantee of victory, save for the GOP backing in Dougco. But the Republican endorsement did not help Branaugh and Powers in Jeffco, despite support from Dougco Republicans.

In Denver, the teachers’ union was one for two, endorsing Jimenez but also Sirota. And Stand for Children in Denver was two for three, endorsing Haynes and Rowe but also Draper Carson.
