Ruppersberger fund-raiser collects up to $375,000

WOODLAWN -- County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger's fund-raiser Tuesday night at Martin's West took in between $350,000 and $375,000, his aides said yesterday.

"It was right on target," said Robert J. Barrett, an assistant to the executive, who estimated that 1,100 people attended. Ruppersberger has at least $1.4 million for an expected run for governor in 2002.

Supporters arriving at the hall were greeted by pickets protesting a bill that would allow county officials to condemn land for economic development. Once inside, they listened to a rousing speech from state Comptroller William Donald Schaefer.
