Child leads Pitkin County candidates in spending, contributions
July 29, 2012
ASPEN – Steve Child, the top vote-getter in the June 26 primary for the District 4 Pitkin County commissioner seat, collected and spent the most money in the days leading up to the election, as well as since then.
Child and John B. Young, who finished second in the race, will face off on the November general election ballot; they will presumably continue to raise and spend money on their respective campaigns.
Child reported collecting nearly $3,000 and spending $4,244 between June 18 and July 21. He had $1,684 on hand at the start of the reporting period.
Young’s most recent report covers the period of June 23 through July 26. He reported $939 in contributions and $1,044 in expenses. He had $105 on hand at the start of the period.
Candidate Darryl Grob, who did not advance to the general election, reported $1,562 in funds on hand at the start of the reporting period and no new contributions. He spent $1,465 between June 18 and July 21, according to his report.
John Wilkinson, who also did not advance, reported $8.62 in funds on hand and no contributions. His expenses amounted to $8.62, according to his report, covering the period of June 22 through July 23. The report did not indicate how the $8.62 was spent.
