Money In, Money Out

Six candidates for county council raised a total of $7,924 and spent $8,968 on their campaigns. That information came from public reports filed with the Montgomery County Clerk's office.
Three candidates did not file reports because they were not required by law to do so. They were Richard Chastain, John Frey and Richard Holtz Jr.
According to Indiana law, if an elected office pays less than $5,000 per year and the candidate does not receive or spend more than $500 on his campaign, he is not required to file, said Karyn Douglas, voter registration deputy in the clerk's office.
You can check out the details of each of the county council candidates' campaign finance reports in this edition of The Paper of Montgomery County.
Campaign finance reports for county commissioner candidates Jim Fulwider and John Pickerill were published in Tuesday's edition.
During the May primary election, Republican voters had the opportunity to decide the candidates that would be on the ballot in the November general election for one county commissioner seat and four county council seats.
Democrats did not have candidates for those seats in the May primary. Democrats may still choose candidates to oppose Republicans in the fall general election. They will do so through their precinct committeemen.
This report was filed April 21. All addresses are Crawfordsville, unless otherwise noted.
All addresses are in Indiana unless state is given.
