Commission fundraising turns to a trickle



Over the final two weeks of July, contributions dramatically slowed to County Commissioner Susan Latvala, Beverley Billiris and Carl Folkman, who are running to unseat Latvala in the Aug. 24 primary. They were slim for Democrat Bob Hackworth, too, according to finance reports due Friday.

Billiris raised $375, and has less than $6,000 on hand entering August.

Folkman raised $3,350, but it was all through personal loans (an interesting tactic given his financial issues). He has less than $400 on hand.

Hackworth raised $135 and has $20,600 on hand

Latvala raised $500 and has $60,600 left to spend.
