New campaign finance reports reveal that both sides in the Southbridge Two referendum fight shelled out large sums of money to spread their messages during the signature drive in December. 

Now, both sides are questioning each other’s ethical behavior in getting those sigantures.

Campaign finance reports filed with the City of Scottsdale on Jan. 15 by the Committee for the Preservation of Old Town Scottsdale and Protecting Scottsdale’s Future show that the PACs cumulatively raised over $262,000 through Dec. 31, 2019.

The bulk of that cash was paid to individuals hired by the developer to spread his message – and not work for the opposition.
