June Election Money Tallies


The winners of three county races in the June primary all reported more money on hand post-election than their challengers. Second District Supervisor Janet Wolf, who held onto her seat, raised $249,346 in 2014 and ended with $18,247 left over; Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves outraised Wolf with $387,272 and concluded with $10,354 on hand. Sheriff Bill Brown won reelection and amassed $100,436 in 2014, finishing with $26,751; Sgt. Sandra Brown nabbed $83,787 and ended with a zero balance. The “No on Measure M” campaign scored $131,715 in 2014 and tallied $4,675 remaining; the “Yes on M” team garnered $113,070 and ended with $979. None of the six campaigns noted any lingering debt, save for “Yes on M” ($1,000).
