A Shenandoah County supervisor threw his support to the treasurer who is fending off a challenge from a fellow board member.
Karl Roulston, District 4 representative on the Shenandoah County Board of Supervisors, recently donated $2,000 to Treasurer Cindy George’s re-election campaign, according to the latest report filed with the local Office of Voter Registration and Elections.
The report covers the period from July 1 through Aug. 31. George reported that she received the contribution from Roulston, the head of Regulus Group in Woodstock, on July 18. She also received smaller contributions from retired county residents Jane Cain and Charles George in July and August, according to the report. She reported 20 un-itemized cash contributions totaling $1,455. George spent $3,559 during the two-month period, leaving the campaign with approximately $890, according to the report.
The treasurer faces a challenge from Richard Walker, District 3 representative on the Board of Supervisors who announced earlier this year that he would not seek re-election to a second term. Rather, Walker chose to run for treasurer.
Walker reported an un-itemized, in-kind contribution valued at approximately $92 during the period. Walker also reported a balance of $100 in his campaign.
Bradley Pollack is running for election to the District 3 seat on the Board of Supervisors. F. Coe Sherrard is challenging Pollack for the position.
Pollack reported no campaign contributions during the period. Pollack spent $402, leaving his campaign with a balance of $697. Pollack also has outstanding loans totaling $1,100.
Sherrard reported that his campaign received $3,385 — $2,670 of which came as unitemized cash contributions — bringing his available funds to $10,384. Sherrard reported that $715 received in the recent period came as cash donations from businesses but mostly from retired residents. Sherrard spent $4,987, leaving his campaign with just under $5,397, according to his report.
Some candidates running unopposed for seats also reported fundraising activity during the period.
Sheriff Timothy C. Carter started the reporting period with a balance of almost $37,218. Carter reported no contributions during the period but he spent $112.
District 2 Supervisor Steven Baker faces no challengers as seeks another term on the board. Baker reported no activity aside from spending $4 for a bank service charge. Baker has spent $308 the entire campaign period and reported a $2,371 balance.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Amanda Wiseley is running unopposed for her third term after defeating challengers in the previous two elections. Wiseley reported no contributions or expenses for the period and a balance of $1,886. Wiseley reported unpaid loans totaling $18,900.
Timothy “Tim” Taylor, the sole candidate running for the District 6 seat on the Board of Supervisors filed for an exemption from the filing requirements in which he promises to not accept contributions nor spend more than $1,000 on his campaign. George filed but later rescinded an exemption from the reporting requirements. Candidates seeking seats on the School Board and the Lord Fairfax Soil and Water Conservation Board are exempt from the reporting requirements.
