Campaign Finance Reports

• Numbers came out this week that show 2nd District Supervisor Janet Wolf has a sizable financial lead on her opponent, Dr. Dan Secord, who recently jumped into the county seat race. Wolf received $14,205 in the two-and-a-half-month filing period which concluded on 3/17, and has an ending cash balance of $66,081. Meanwhile, Secord and his wife, Mary, boosted his campaign with $13,395 in loans, bringing in a total of $21,645. Wolf spent more than $17,000 during the filing period. The primary is set for 6/8.

• Santa Barbara City Councilmember Das Williams, who’s vying with rival Susan Jordan for the Democratic Party’s 35th Assembly District nomination, out-raised Jordan in the last reporting period, collecting $88,000 compared to her $17,000. In terms of cash on hand, Williams has $130,000 more than Jordan, who on 3/23 filed to accept voluntary spending limits on contributors. In addition, Williams appears to have all but secured the endorsement of the statewide Democratic Party. This weekend, Williams secured the votes of 66 delegates attending a regional pre-endorsement conference in Ventura, whereas Jordan won 12.

Contributors to Lynn’s campaign also include colleagues Arnie Tolks, Jeffrey Gittler, recently retired assistant DA Eric Hanson, and retired DA Christie Stanley’s husband, Gary.
