Crumbley leads pack in Pasco School Board campaign financing



crumbleythumb.GIFWith a dozen candidates seeking three Pasco School Board seats this summer, money is likely to play a big role in putting names before voters’ eyes.

School Board District 4 candidate Alison Crumbley took a big lead in that race over the past quarter.

In finance reports filed Friday, Crumbley detailed that she had added $17,290 to her campaign coffers — more than the other four hopefuls in her race combined. She added those contributions to her own $10,000 loan to herself to exceed any other candidate running for the board.

Crumbley’s support came from a broad range of local residents and businesspeople, including some well-known names such as former board member Dorothy Mitchell, property appraiser Mike Wells and former assistant superintendent Ray Gadd.
