Pinellas campaign cash roundup



Campaign reports for the period from Sept. 13 to the 26 were due Friday. With a month to go before Election Day, here's a roundup of where things stand in terms of cash in some Pinellas County races. Read below for more.

In the Property Appraiser contest, Republican Pam Dubov collected $10,235. She's been spending from her considerable war chest, and ended the period with $3,669 on hand. Democrat Ben Friedlander took in $3,685, and had $7,437 to spend.

In the race for Supervisor of Elections, Republican incumbent Deb Clark gave herself a fat $16,000 loan, bringing her take for the period to $16,400. She's spent some, too, and had $7,610 on hand. Democratic challenger Jack Killingsworth took in a modest $1,250 in cash. He had $5,981 to spend.

In the District 1 County Commission race, Republican Neil Brickfield, whose report was mailed and not immediately available, told Bay Buzz he took in $8,950 and spent $225. Based on past reports, that would mean he had $14,901 to spend. Democrat Paul Matton raised $740 and had $2,219 on hand.

In the District 3 race, Republican Nancy Bostock raised $3,030. She's been shedding cash as well, and had $976 on hand. Democrat Rene Flowers took in $3,225 and had $1,957 on hand.

In the District 5 race, Republican incumbent Karen Seel raised $7,555 and had a war chest of $61,031. Democrat Norm Roche took in $2,310 and had $4,414 on hand. No party candidate Jake Mullens reported no activity.
