Tuesday was the deadline for all candidates in the Nov. 6 elections to file campaign finance forms with the Louisiana Ethics Administration.
The two candidates for the First Circuit court of Appeal District 1 judge, independent Ellen Doskey and Republican Walt Lanier III, already filed preliminary reports in August.
Those first reports included contributions and expenses through the month of April. Lanier had raised nearly $100,000 in contributions for his campaign, of which he spent about $10,000, and Doskey’s campaign had received a $1,000 loan, of which she spent $70,
According to the latest reports, Lanier received an additional $17,250 in contributions from July 30 to Sept. 27 but spent about $33,000.
Lanier reported about $82,000 left in his campaign account.
Some of the largest donations include those from Alliance Offshore ($3,000) and Reed and Todd Danos ($1,000 each).
In the same period, Doskey received about $22,000 in contributions, spending about half that amount.
By the end of the reporting period, Doskey had about $55,000 left in the account.
Some of her largest donations came from Edward Daigle ($2,200), Margie Katz of New Orleans (total $5,000) and Quatro Macho Outfitters ($2,500).
Neither candidate reported contributions from any political action or party committees.
Disclosure reports were also filed for most of the Thibodaux City Council candidates.
For the District D at-large seat, incumbent Chip Badeaux reported zero campaign contributions from Jan. 2 to Sept. 27. But he reported spending about $5,100.
According to state disclosure laws, candidates for public office are required to report if they receive donations, other than from their personal funds, from at least one person for more than $200.
His opponent, Mike Naquin, reported $27,000 in contributions, with $1,000 in personal contributions and about $8,000 from fundraising events from May 19 to Sept. 27.
For the District A seat, the report for incumbent Eric Tabor was not available by the Ethics Administration by Friday due to the high volume of reports needed to be scanned, officials said.
His opponent, Gretchen Caillouet, reported about $8,400 in donations from May 15 to Sept. 27.
In District C, challenger Burnell Tolbert did not file a report. Candidates are not required to file a report if they do not have individual contributions over $200 or more than $2,500 in expenses.
Incumbent Constance Johnson reported $2,600 in small donations.
None of the candidates who reported contributions received them from political action or party committees.
Early voting for the Nov. 6 election will be held Oct. 23 to Oct. 30, excluding Sunday Oct. 28.
