In the 2012 campaign cycle, University City residents have made 152 contributions to the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the Democratic and Republican Party nominees. A Patch analysis shows 100 percent of those donations have gone to President Obama.
The public-record list of contributors in University City includes a variety of physicians, attorneys, college professors and business executives who donated to each candidate. University City residents only contributed to Obama and no one has given over $500.
Those include Fireside Group, LLC President Brian Kearns, Northwestern Mutual Managing Director Gerard Hempstead and Washington University Professor Todd Zenger, who each gave $2,500.
The largest single donation to the Obama campaign has been $500, coming from seven people, including Washington University employees Ronald Levin and Susan Plassmeyer, physican William L. Holcomb, attorney Gary Burger, psychotherapist Melissa Scolaro and Monsanto's Deryck J. Williams.
Patch has created an interactive database so you can see how much your neighbors are donating to the presidential campaign—and to which candidate they’re writing their checks. We’ve included communities across Missouri, so if you want to see what the campaign contributions in St. Charles or Ladue, go right ahead.
Note: The information in this story is based on a search of donations from residents who claimed a University City address. It would not include University City residents with a St. Louis, MO address. You can also search the database by ZIP Code only.
The information in the database was downloaded from the Federal Election Commission’s website. The data is based on quarterly reports, and is current through July. The data will be updated in mid-October.
