District 2 candidates lead the way in campaign donations

Candidates have submitted their required campaign finance documents for activity in recent months, while the county elections office made them available this week.

The incumbent District 2 supervisor and his challenger raised the most money among six candidates vying for three open seats on the county board.

Supervisor Anthony Botelho, facing challenger Art Medina for the District 2 seat, raised a total of $35,559 between Jan. 1 and May 19 – with $23,809 of that amount in loans from the supervisor to his own campaign.

Medina raised $16,979. Although his total donation amount was smaller than Botelho’s – due to the incumbent’s loan figure – Medina raised more monetary and non-monetary contributions from outside donors.

Incumbent Jaime De La Cruz faces challenger Sonny Flores in District 5. De La Cruz raised $15,696 from Jan. 1 through May 19. Flores raised $11,310 with $8,000 of that amount from loans.

In the race for District 1 supervisor, incumbent Margie Barrios raised $6,728 and challenger Mark Starritt raised $1,800 – all in loans from the challenger to his own campaign.
