According to the New York State Board of Elections campaign finance filings Dirk Rabenold had a fundraiser at Bing's in August 2006 when he was not a candidate for any office.
One of his expenditures was about $400 to law firm Bouvier for legal advice. Why would he seek legal advice when he was not running for anything and is this a legitimate "campaign" expense for a campaign that doesn't exist? Isn't this the same law firm that Dan Ward sought to hire to sue the Town's outside counsel?
Also, there was a campaign contribution to Dirk Rabenold for $1,000 from a firm called Prolink in East Aurora which is a golf course management firm. Isn't Dirk Rabenold on the Recreation Commission and I understand there is a proposal regarding golf course management being reviewed by the Recreation Commission.
