Don’t be surprised if you get an error message while trying to access Cathedral City Mayor Kathy DeRosa’s campaign site.
DeRosa told The Desert Sun that the company that was hosting her site — www.evoter.com –has “shut down the site.”
DeRosa noted the decision also impacts every other California candidate who was using the web host and that there is “no recourse.”
DeRosa has advertised both the website and her Facebook page on her campaign literature, including a mailer that recently went to voters.
The main website is now down, so it’s not clear how much evoter.com charged candidates. A price list from June 2010 that’s still archived online indicates municipal candidates used to be charged $50.
DeRosa and every other municipal candidate must disclose how much they’ve raised and spent by Friday.
