At the end of a recent political forum, supervisor candidate Dick Lundy referred to “hundreds” of “missing” ballots in the June primary election. The comment followed several weeks of rumors, phone calls, e-mails and letters alleging a number of mail ballots were not counted. Those allegations carried with them the suggestion that Lundy would not be in a run-off election with J.P. Kennedy if all the ballots had been counted.
Contribution and expenditure information through Sept. 30 is in for Dick Lundy and Jon Kennedy. The hotly contested District 5 supervisor’s run-off election has both candidates collecting and spending like (almost) no other campaign in recent memory.
According to Melinda Rother, assistant clerk/recorder, who has been in the office for 15 years, “You don’t see people spending the kind of money we’re seeing here.”
