Below is a list of contributions made to the Williams Campaign during the quarter which ended September 27, 1990 the most recent filing period. Observer interns Richard Arellano, Ali Hossaini, Vince Lozano, and Jennifer Wong compiled the list from candidate disclosure forms, which by law must be filed in the secretary of state’s office in Austin. Our original plan was to list all contributions of $1,000 or more. Such a list, however, would have filled almost half of this issue. We have therefore included only contributions above $1,000, along with a few notable lesser givers. During the recent quarter, Williams raised $3,585,924.24 In mid-October, at a Dallas fundraiser featuring President Bush, $2 million was raised. Frederick R. Meyer $10,400 Dallas Paul J.
