Cash count: Logue leads Horne

District 3 Assembly candidate Dan Logue has raised three times as much money as his rival, Nevada County Supervisor Sue Horne, in the two months leading up to Tuesday’s election.

But Horne spent nearly $71,000 more than Logue during the same period from mid-March to mid-May. Both are running for the Republican Party nomination.

Races for state Assembly and county supervisor are heating up and growing more costly by the day as candidates collect and spend tens of thousands of dollars on their campaigns.

Candidates are required to report their total contributions and expenditures for their campaigns, and most did so on May 22 for the period from March 18 to May 17.

In her run for the California Legislature, Horne gathered $14,289 in monetary contributions and spent $166,581 during the two-month period. During that time, she gave $30,000 of her own money to her campaign. By May 22, she had an ending cash balance of $173,373.

Meanwhile, Yuba County Supervisor Logue collected $58,015 in campaign contributions during the same period. He spent $95,879 and ended with a cash balance of $191,630.

Some of the largest contributors to the Horne campaign include the political action committees of The California Association of Psychiatric Technicians Inc. with $1,650, and The Doctors Co., of Napa, with $1,000.

Other Horne contributors included Chevron Corp., of Concord, $1,000; Union Pacific Corp., of Sacramento, $1,500; and Farmers Group Inc., $1,000.

Local contributors to Horne’s campaign include Loma Rica developers Carville Sierra, Inc. with $500; William Peterson, of Ashley furniture, $500; Richter Property Management, of Chico, $500; and The Northridge Restaurant, $1,000.

Other contributors include Nevada City Treasurer and retired businessman George Foster, $1,000; County Assessor Dale Flippin, $100; and Supervisor John Spencer, $200.

District 2 supervisor candidates

In the nonpartisan race for District 2 Nevada County supervisor representing the southern part of the county, 25-year county fairgrounds CEO Ed Scofield is leading in monetary contributions with $35,345 for the March 18 to May 17 period.

Scofield spent $30,024 during the same period, leaving him with a balance of $7,421.

The largest contributor to the Scofield campaign was Troy Whitney, an IT consultant from Loomis, with $2,000.

Other Scofield contributors include the Nevada County Contractors Association, $1,000; Gilbert Mathew, CEO of the county Economic Resource Council, $399; contractor Dan Rossovich, $1,000; Supervisor Hank Weston, $100.

Land-use attorney Bob Joehnck collected $7,388 and spent $11,444, reducing his balance to $3,656.

Joehnck contributors included the Nevada County Democratic Central Committee, $1,000; and retiree Holger Hahn, $2,000.

Alan Kilborn, a businessman and retired police officer, did not meet the filing deadline and was surprised to learn of the oversight when The Union contacted him Friday.

“I was thinking it was June 24,” Kilborn said.

He filed the California 460 forms later that day. For the period of March 18 to May 17, Kilborn received $13,624 in campaign contributions and spent $10,311. He was left with an ending balance of $15,641.

Major contributors included Forest Springs Mobile Home Park for $1,000; ranching and development company Young Enterprises, of Auburn, $1,000; and $10,000 he gave himself.
