Early campaign contributions and expenditure reports are in and the Secretary of State’s office reports that true to his word, democrat Ken Lundie, challenging incumbent Lincoln County County Commissioner Bill Hall, has not accepted campaign contributions from anyone but himself, digging into his own pockets for all of his campaign expenses. Lundie’s contributions/expenditure report shows that he’s provided his campaign with $9,500 with over half of it going up front for political advertising in the Newport News-Times. He also shows $300 for political signs, $200 for sign stakes and $113.99 for a power drill to screw them together. He also shows $150 spent on his candidacy filing fee at the county recorder’s office.
Incumbent Democratic County Commissioner Bill Hall shows $1,691.45 raised from a number of campaign contributors including $250 from Pahl Scharping, $200 from Leigh Evans, and the rest in lesser amounts. Halls expenditures early in his primary race include advertising with KBCH radio for $225, News Lincoln County for $112.50, and his clerk’s office filing fee of $150.
