Durham County Sheriff ahead in campaign funds; plus, a look at other first-quarter reports

Posted by on Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 2:14 PM

First-quarter campaign finance reports were due Monday across the state. In a quick look at Durham's candidates in races for school board and sheriff, incumbent Sheriff Worth Hill is ahead in fundraising compared to primary opponent Tony Butler and Republican candidate Roy Taylor.

(View all reports here or read on for a summary.)

Taylor has raised $4,025, including a personal loan of almost $3,500. Butler has loaned himself $1,000 this quarter, adding to about $1,900 he already had in campaign funding.

Hill has raised $8,300 in the first quarter, bringing his total campaign fund to $8,700, including $500 from Durham architect John Atkins III of O'Brien/Atkins Associates, $200 from Cardinal State Bank VP Charles Sanders, $250 from Robert D. Teer Jr. of Teer Construction Company, $75 from the NCCU Foundation and $350 from the People's Alliance. Hill spent $240 this quarter advertising in the Triangle Tribune, a weekly community newspaper targeted to a black audience.

Even though he is running unopposed for re-election, Clerk of Court Archie Smith raised $3,400 this quarter to add to the $9,000 he already had in his campaign account. Recent contributions include $200 from retired Durham County Sheriff Roland Leary, checks from George Beischer, Frank Ward and Rick Soles who head Durham real estate groups, a long list of attorneys, and Bill Shore, who is director of U.S. community partnerships for GlaxoSmithKline.

In the race for four chairs on the Durham school board, incumbents Omega Curtis Parker and Steve Martin filed threshold reports stating they intended to raise or spend less than $1,000 in their current campaigns.

Parker will face off against Donald Hughes, who has raised more than $6,000 this election cycle, though most of the fundraising occurred before 2010, according to the report.

Incumbent Fredrick Davis raised about $1,000 this quarter, adding to $630 he already had. Notable contributions include $150 from Michael Palmer, assistant vice president of community affairs at Duke University, and $100 from Rev. Michael Page, who is chairman of the Durham County Board of Commissioners.

Candidate Christine Baker has raised almost $1,400 for this campaign, collecting dozens of $1 to $3 donations at a bake sale in March. She also received $500 from the N.C. Realtors PAC in Greensboro.
