From KERA News: Plano city council members have something in common — since November 2021, their biggest campaign contributions have all come from the PAC for a real estate advocacy group that strongly supports short-term rental owners. A KERA review of campaign finance reports found that the Texas Realtors Political Action Committee (TREPAC) donated $1,000 to all of the Plano city council members' campaign funds at the end of 2021 or in early 2022 — and $2,000 to Mayor John Muns. For all but one council member, it was the only contribution listed on their campaign finance reports during that time.
