Officials get donations from backers of two projects

Individuals with companies seeking permits to build two housing developments in ­Jamaica Plain have contributed a total of $17,000 to the campaigns of local elected officials who represent areas around the proposed project sites.

Residents who have criticized the development plans along South Huntington Avenue raised concerns about the donations, which went to the mayor, city councilors, and a state representative. The donations are listed on a state website that tracks campaign ­finance records.
