Greenville – Officials with L-3 are investing heavily in two of the candidates running for the Greenville City Council.

Campaign finance reports indicate that Jeffery E. Dailey has taken in the most political contributions by far of any candidate, at more than $9,900 as of April 14.

Dailey, a candidate for Place 3, along with Place 4 candidate Sue Ann Harding, are receiving some of their biggest contributions from employees with L-3 and local residents who've backed the company in their dispute with the City.

However, Place 3 Incumbent Doug Roszhart, who works at L-3, hasn't received the same level of support. However, both Roszhart and Velma Del Bosque-Hobdy, another candidate for Place 4, have received substantial campaign contributions from local firefighters.
