By no means do I claim to be the most knowledgeable political observer in Nashville, so there may be other donors to Ms Rebovick’s campaign that are as significant as those that I notices, so if you want to see for yourself who contributed to her campaign follow this link. If you notice anything of significance please feel free to leave a comment.
Governor Winfield Dunn contributed $500.
Coleen Conway-Welch, retired Dean of Vanderbilt School of Nursing and widow of Ted Welch, one of the largest Republican fund raisers in the nation, contributed $500. She contributed to $3000 to the Jeremy Kane campaign however.
Oliver C. Carmichael, III CEO of Carmichael & Carmichael contributed $1500. I am not absolutely certain but I believe this is “Crom” Carmichael who some may remember from years ago as the outspoken conservative on the old Teddy Bart Show.
Arthur Laffer, economist who developed the “Laffer Curve," author, and former advisor to President Ronald Reagan, donated $1000.
Chancellor Carol McCoy gave $1500. Daman Hininger the CEO of Correction Corporation of American contributed $1000 and Louise Grant who is Vice President of Corrections Corporation of America gave $1500. Shirley Zeitlin CEO of Zeitin & Co., $1000. In addition to the loan to her campaign, Ms Rebrovick gave herself $1500 and her husband Arthur Rebrovick, Jr contributed $1500. She got several donations from people with the last name “Eskind.” She only got a few out of state contribution.
This reporting period ended Jan. 14th and the next reporting period covers the period Jan. 15 through March 31st and is due April 10th. I will be updating my reporting on financial contributions to all the candidates when reports are filed with the election commission and become available.
