Two of the three local candidates who filed financial disclosures Friday have not raised money in their campaigns for office.
District 8 Augusta Commission challenger Alan Tanner and District 4 candidate Bernard Harper filed reports listing no contributions Friday, a day after the postmark deadline for filing financial disclosures.
District 8 candidate Doug Lively also filed Friday, declaring that his campaign had raised $1,859. His contributions include a $500 donation from Darren Smith, contributions of $150 each from Rodger Giles and John Wimburn and $200 from Elizabeth Lively.
Seven Richmond County school board candidates met Thursday's deadline, but three who filed have not raised any money: District 7 incumbent Frank Dolan, District 9 incumbent Venus Cain and District 6 challenger Taylor Bryant.
District 3 incumbent Alex Howard has out-raised all other school board candidates, with $4,682.43. All of the single contributions were less than $101, so Howard did not have to list his donors. District 6 incumbent Jack Padgett and District 2 candidate Bill Law both reported raising $100.
Shirley Darby, a former Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority member, has outpaced her competitor by raising $2,677 for her campaign for the District 9 school board seat. She listed contributions from William Wright, Barbara Holland, Alfred Mitchell, Bettye Swain and Sandra Thomas, all of whom donated $100 each, according to Darby's financial disclosure.
Financial disclosures that were mailed could continue to come in, said Richmond County Board of Elections Executive Director Lynn Bailey. Advance voting for the July 20 primary begins Monday.
