Campaign fundraising in the two contested Nevada County supervisors’ races jumped in the period of Jan. 1 to March 17.
Supervisor candidates in both races will face the public tonight at the first in a series of Nevada County League of Women Voters’ election forums. The event is at 7 p.m. at the county’s Rood Center in Nevada City in the board of supervisors’ chambers.
Complete campaign contribution totals were available after the reporting deadline Monday and after mail filings were received at the Nevada County Elections Office.
Several candidates’ reports were not available until late Monday or Tuesday afternoon.
Grass Valley Mayor Dan Miller, who is trying to unseat incumbent District 3 Supervisor Terry Lamphier, reported contributions of $11,048 for the reporting period, while Lamphier’s totals for the same time frame were $6,087.
Attorney Fran Cole, who is trying to unseat incumbent District 4 Supervisor Hank Weston, had contributions of $2,927, while Weston’s total for the same period was $13,037. No reports were available this week for a second challenger, Jedediah Biagi.
Some of the largest contributors to the various races came from local political action committees, as reported in a story in Tuesday’s edition of The Union.
All totals listed are before expenses. They do not reflect cash on hand nor do they include contributions from last year.
