Candidates file finance reports

Funding for this year’s race for Los Alamos County Council runs the gamut from $100 to $5,500 and from largely self-financed to campaign coffers almost entirely comprised of small contributions.
Billy J. McKerley tops the list for contributions at $5,500, but the majority of that, $4,700, is from either loans or direct contributions to his own campaign.
McKerley received $450 from five local donors and $200 from two out-of-state donors, plus $100 from Los Alamos Federated Republican Women and $100 from the Republican Party of Los Alamos.
McKerley’s campaign finance reports have a few notable items.
In the second general election report he lists a $2,000 loan to himself under contributions and a $1,000 partial loan repayment to himself under expenditures.
An amended first general election report likewise shows $2,500 in loans to himself and partial loan repayments of $700. His initial first general election filing lists a $2,000 contribution to himself and $2,800 in self-generated loans.
The amended filing drops the $2,000 contribution and changes the loans to $2,500.
The bulk of David Izraelevitz $4,683.87 campaign fund, $3,865, comes from 29 local donors. The balance comes from $818.87 in loans to his own campaign.
