Today, I thought it might be interesting to look at what countywide officials have in their campaign funds. This is the first year the public has not had to wait until January. The new quarterly reporting law took effect on January 1, 2011, so this is the first October snapshot of summer-fall fundraising.
Let’s look at the McHenry County officials up for election first:
- Circuit Clerk Katherine Keefe – $580
- Recorder of Deeds Phyllis Walters – $19,341
- State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi – $93,723
- Coroner candidate Anne Majewski – No report
Campaign disclosure reports do not have to be filed until either $3,000 is raised or spent.
