In 2005, Marty Zlotnik - one of Gordon Campbell's former associates - was among those who encouraged Christy Clark to run for the Non-Partisan Association's mayoral nomination. Six years later, Ms. Clark is now competing for the provincial Liberal leadership. But, according to a list of campaign donations released today by George Abbott, Mr. Zlotnik has contributed $5,000 toward the Shuswap MLA's competing bid to succeed Gordon Campbell. Ms. Clark isn't expected to disclose her campaign contributions until after the Liberal leadership vote is held on February 26. Mr. Zlotnik hasn't yet responded to an email requesting comment.
