“As newly-elected officials prepare to take office, candidates who werent elected are scrambling to cover campaign debts.
The Committee to Elect JeanMarie Christenson held an online auction last week to help pay the remaining debt from her campaign.
Proceeds went to cover campaign expenses incurred during the campaign.
On Dec. 10, Christenson posted a debt of $1,802.11 to the Public Disclosure Commission, or PDC.
That debt is listed as a loan to herself.
Candidates who werent elected have until Wednesday, Dec. 31 to take in contributions, PDC officials said…
Thirty-two items were up for auction, donated by individuals and local businesses. Items included a lime green color scheme gift basket valued at $45, a hand-made quilt valued at $800, a gourmet soy candle valued at $18, Shaklee Basics Essential Vita Strips valued at $45 and an evening of storytelling and song valued at $150.
