Final campaign finance reports show that not only did the backers of the current plan for a new Newton North High School win the citywide election in January, they won the money race too.
In the reporting period covering Jan. 7 to Feb. 22, supporters pulled in $13,864.11 to just $4,065.42 for opponents of the $151 million project. During the previous reporting period from Sept. 27 to Jan. 6, proponents raised $45,600 versus $3,000 for opponents.
The largest contributor who liked the design for the new school, as shown in the most recent reports, filed last week, was Democratic activist Steven Grossman who gave $3,000. Other big names were state Auditor A. Joseph DeNucci, who gave $500(cq) through his campaign committee and $100 personally; Paul Guzzi, CEO of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and former state representative, who gave $250; and Michael Jellinek, president of Newton-Wellesley Hospital, who gave $250.
