Lott Richardson is the only Re-1 candidate to report contributions

Roaring Fork School District Re-1 school board candidate Terry Lott Richardson was the only one of five Re-1 board candidates in today’s election to take campaign contributions, according to filings with the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office.

Lott Richardson of Glenwood Springs, who is running for the open District C school board seat against Phil Weir, had received $620 from supporters in her effort to win election to the seat being vacated by Re-1 board member Bill Lamont.

According to her official Oct. 28 Report of Contributions and Expenditures, Lott Richardson had spent all but $95.41 in her election bid, including advertising, yard signs and T-shirts.

Among her leading contributors were Glenwood Springs resident Jenny Cutright, Carbondale philanthropist George Stranahan, and Jennifer Holmgren of Glenwood Springs, who served as Lott Richardson’s campaign manager.

Weir, also from Glenwood Springs, reported taking no campaign contributions in his bid to win the District C school board seat.

He did spend $213 on yard signs, according to his campaign finance filing with state election officials.

The two candidates for the Re-1 District D school board seat, incumbent Myles Rovig and challenger Daniel Biggs, reported no contributions or expenditures.

The fifth candidate, Matt Hamilton of Carbondale, is running unopposed for the District B school board seat being vacated by Re-1 board member Debbie Bruell.

Opposing candidates running for the Garfield Re-2 school board District B seat, Patrick Burwell and Troy Feese, also reported no contributions or expenditures for the Oct. 28 reporting period.

Candidates in the Nov. 1 election are required to file a final Contributions and Expenditures report 30 days after the election, on Dec. 1.
