India Walton’s top donors are as different as Byron Brown’s top sponsors as the candidates are themselves: academics and progressive activists back her, and local developers and business leaders back her.

Two retired University at Buffalo professors, husband and wife, each contributed more than $ 12,700 this year to Walton’s campaign, more than any of his other supporters.

In fact, Carl Nightingale and Martha McCluskey each gave more to their candidate than Brown has received from each of his most generous individual donors.

Nightingale, who taught in the department of African and American studies, and McCluskey, who taught in the UB law school, said they share Walton’s vision for the city.

“In the India campaign, we see a true city of neighbors working together to improve their communities, building dreams together, increasing their voice and visibility, and building power among the many in the name of hope,” the two wrote in an email. email in response to questions in this story.

Another retired UB professor, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Carl Dennis, was Walton’s third largest donor, according to a Buffalo News analysis of campaign finance reports filed this year with the state Board of Elections.

Brown’s top three individual donors this year, each of whom gave him $ 12,700, are business leaders: Douglas Jemal, who is developing several projects in Buffalo, including the Seneca One tower and Statler; Paul Millstein, Vice President of Jemal’s Company; and Melinda Rich, vice president of Rich Products and wife of Robert Rich, president of the company.
