|2015 candidates Carmelo Garcia (6th Ward), Peter Biancamano (2nd Ward). [Note to satirically-challenged, out-of-towners: Carmelo Garcia's garb has been photo-shopped]|
GA does not have a Harvard diploma like candidate Carmelo Garcia, but I do have a calculator. Why mention this? Because when GA looked inside Mr. Garcia's 2015 campaign ELEC folder, it was empty. Zip! In fact, the last ELEC report filed by Carmelo Garcia was on April 21, 2015 for "Garcia for Assembly."
GA's not Harvard material, so I don't understand the math on Garcia's April 21st ELEC.
Let's start with $47,441.67. Under Receipts (Table 1), Garcia reports the "cumulative to date" monetary contributions in excess of $300 (Schedule A) equals $47,441.67. That means, if you total all of the individual contributors' aggregate contributions on Schedule A, they will equal $47, 441.67. Right?
WRONG! You aren't using Harvard math.
GA used plain math (learned in NYC public school) to add the aggregate contributions on Schedule A and instead of $47,441.67, I got a non-Harvard total of $384,043.84.
That's a difference of $336, 602.17!
Understand the problem?
"Garcia for Assembly's" Schedule A REPORTED $384,043.84 total aggregate amount in monetary contributions, but REPORTED Schedule A "cumulative-to-date" receipts as $47,441.57.
Somebody who understands Harvard math, please find the MISSING $336,602.17!
Where did the money go?????
See Receipts, Table 1:
Now, see Schedule A (page 1): GA's non-Harvard math total aggregate contributions for this page is $252,430.
Schedule A, page 2 GA's non-Harvard math total aggregate contributions for this page is $86,984.84.
Schedule A, page 3. GA's non-Harvard math total aggregate contributions for this page is $44,629.
Look, I am no genius.
GA has to rely on a calculator and a NYC public school education. Therefore, I am counting on YOU people to figure this out for me. Here is the complete ELEC:
Harvard math is like magic.... it makes big piles of money disappear.... POOF!
That is why we should not elect a Harvard magician for City Council.
That is why Hoboken residents should stick with boring Reform math. There is nothing magical about it- we don't know how to make 4,000,000 quarters disappear or squander $150,000 of your money on a frivolous ethnic cleansing lawsuit against the Mayor, her husband, and other current and former Hoboken officials.
Please folks, tell your 6th Ward friends and neighbors to
