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).
