Lamari Leads in Fundraising in MoCo's District 4
Campaign finance reports filed this week show Montgomery County Council candidate Cary Lamari leading in fundraising in the District 4 special election contest to fill the open seat left by the death of Don Praisner in January.
Lamari, a civic activist and Democrat, raised $3,592 through March 17, according to reports filed with the Maryland State Board of Elections. The former Montgomery County Civic Federation president also loaned his campaign $10,000 and had about $11,800 on hand going into the final month of the primary race.
Del. Benjamin Kramer (D) raised $2,200, followed by Board of Education member Nancy Navarro who raised $2,090 during the same period. Kramer has loaned his campaign $23,000 and reported a balance of $4,162. Navarro, who ran unsuccessfully against Praisner in last year's special election, had a prior balance of $43,220 and reported $12,151 in the bank.
Navarro's campaign aide David Moon said in an e-mail that her first fundraiser of the season is planned for tonight and he expects her next report to show "strong totals."
Other candidates in the April 21 primary contests - funeral director Michael Bigler, a Democrat; information technology consultant Thomas Hardman, a Democrat: and non-profit executive Lou August, a Republican - reported loans of less than $1,000 to each of their own campaigns.
