Conklin campaign funds top $30K

Proceeds from an auction fund-raiser this month pushed the campaign contributions to District 3 supervisorial incumbent Bruce Conklin over the $30,000 mark.

Conklin netted $12,414 from the sale of goods at a Miners Foundry auction Jan. 12, according to campaign contribution statements filed with the county Elections Office for the period Jan. 1-19.

Conklin also received $1,995 in cash contributions to raise his total to $30,317. To date, he has collected $17,903 in cash and $12,414 in nonmonetary contributions.

District 3 challenger Mark Johnson took in $4,168 in cash contributions to push his total to $9,213. To date, all of Johnson’s contributions have been in cash.

District 3 candidate Drew Bedwell received $2,129 in cash contributions, bringing his total to $27,208. He has taken in $4,773 in cash donations and $20,562 in nonmonetary contributions.

Campaign contributions have slowed somewhat in the District 4 supervisor race.

Incumbent Elizabeth Martin added a scant $974 to her previous total of $52,652.97. Challenger Robin Sutherland took in $525 in cash to bump her total up to $7,300.41.

Challenger Rene Antonson, however, nearly doubled his take from the last filing period with $922.50 in cash and $649.56 in nonmonetary contributions, for a total of $3,464.

District 4 challengers Bill Steele and Michael Harris have yet to raise any money for their campaigns.

In the race for county clerk-recorder, incumbent Lorraine Jewett-Burdick added $1,749 in cash and $3,703 in nonmonetary contributions to her previous total of $4,942, while challenger Kevin Waggoner took in only $879 for a total of $4,429.52.
