What a difference a few campaign cycles can make.

That is what Elk Grove Mayor Gary Davis and City Council Member Pat Hume might have been thinking when they recently filed their quarterly campaign financing Form 460 with the Elk Grove City Clerk's office.  
According to the quarterly disclosure forms required for all candidates, both Davis and Hume scaled back fundraising efforts candidates for the three months ending September 30, 2014. Both men are running unopposed for their respective positions.

Davis reported no fundraising activity for the quarter and ended the period with $22,537 on hand. In the first six months of the year, when he did not know who might run against him for his second two-year term, Davis raised $9,750.

Hume raised $5,800 for the just-ended quarter, on top of the $23,488 he raised during the first six months of the year in anticipation of this November's race. As of September 30, Hume reported having $37,311 on hand.

Both men were first elected in 2006 defeating two of the original five city council members. In an era when Elk Grove-housing was still booming, Davis and Hume conducted the most expensive campaigns in the city's 14 year history.

In 2006 Davis raised $217,942 of which $16,658 was non-monetary contributions while Hume raised $210,559 which included a $25,000 personal loan and $21,632 in non-momentary contributions.

Interesting to note that even running unopposed, Pat Hume got $2,500 from the North State BIA, as did Nancy Chaires. But no so for Gary Davis.
