No surprises in judge, commissioner campaign reports

In the race for Logan County Family Court judge, candidate Kim Kellogg-Martin has raised the most cash, but she has been outspent by her opponents, Dan LaRoche and Eric Stewart.

According to campaign finance filings submitted to the Logan County Board of Elections by the Thursday deadline, all three of the candidates who will appear on the Republican ballot came into the year with zero balances.

As of last week, Mrs. Kellogg-Martin had raised $11,845 and spent $4,885, leaving her with a balance of $6,960 going into the final two weeks before the election.

Mr. LaRoche reported raising $4,671 and spending $4,283. He supplemented that with a $4,582 of in-kind contributions of his own resources and an advertising donation from his brother, Dave LaRoche, bringing his total campaign expense to $8,865. He reported $388 in cash available to finish out the race.

Mr. Stewart reported bringing in and spending $5,650 with no carryover.

While Mr. LaRoche reported most of his personal contributions to his campaign through the in-kind category, Mrs. Kellogg-Martin’s came in the form of $3,000 in contributions from her husband, Jeff Martin, and Mr. Stewart reported a $500 contribution from himself and contributions from other family members in Las Vegas.
