Kanalakis and Garcia battle in campaign fund raising, Miller trails.
Tuesday, June 1, 2010
Sheriff Mike Kanalakis raised more than $63,000 in the past two months, surpassing retired cmdr. Fred Garcia who brought in nearly $57,000 and walloping former Pacific Grove police chief Scott Miller who only received $9,400 in contributions. The campaign statements cover fund raising from March 18 through May 22.
Kanalakis and Garcia were nearly neck and neck in campaign spending during the period with both reporting around $73,000 in expenditures. But as expected, Kanalakis, a two-term incumbent, is raising more cash and spending more, plus he has more than $39,000 in cash compared to Miller's $37K and Garcia's $5,700.
Miller has loaned his campaign more than $75K, compared to Kanalakis' $48K and Garcia's more than $30K.
