Local Campaign Contribution Numbers Released
Campaign fundraising documents released this week show — in terms of dollars — a neck-and-neck contest for the county’s 2nd District supervisorial seat and an uneven matchup in the Sheriff’s race. Second District Supervisor Janet Wolf raised nearly $46,000 from July through December 2013, for a total of nearly $92,000 for all of 2013. Her challenger, Goleta City Councilmember Roger Aceves, collected all of his donations from July to December, raising approximately $106,000. Sheriff Bill Brown has so far out-raised challenger Sandra Brown $110,000 to $39,000. Fifth District Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, unopposed so far, raised $51,000 in 2013.
