Visualization: Explore where Hillsboro election money is coming from
We’ve created our first interactive tool just in time for election season! Now you, too, can see where local politicians are getting their money without sorting through large, unwieldy spreadsheets. Filter by candidate (e.g. Kate Brown), position (e.g. House District 30), or donor (e.g. Martin Granum*) to create your very own beautifully colored Sankey flow chart.
Special thanks to @CivicSoftware for the scripts used to collect data from Orestar and to Michael Turk for putting this tool together for us.
Play around, and let us know what you find!
*Granum has donated to city council candidates Olivia Alcaire and Beach Pace; he is cited as an example here because he sits on the Hillsboro School Board of Directors
