Leading up to the Aug. 28 primary, Lake Havasu City Council candidates fundraising activities heated up significantly, but little to nothing in donations has happened in the next reporting period.
The only two candidates that had any financial activity in the Aug. 17 through Sept. 17 post primary reporting period — LaJuana Gillette and Donna Brister — didn’t end up raising significant amounts of money.
Gillette loaned her campaign committee $1,500 and Brister reported receiving $70 in campaign contributions — $50 from Donna Imhausen, a local escrow officer, and $20 from David Bolster, a local appraiser.
Gillette’s campaign loan bumped up her cash on hand to more than $1,800.
Brister reported spending nearly $1,200 on advertising in Havasu Living Magazine and Smart Shopper.
Incumbents Don Callahan and Dean Barlow filed no activity statements for the post primary election report. They were joined by Michael Bersch and Norm Halfpenny. Halfpenny dropped out of the race last month in filing no activity statements.
The general election for three City Council seats is Nov. 6.
