Hume cranks-up cash machine, starts Elk Grove City Council reelection race with over $112k

July 24, 2018 |  

With an opponent who promises to run a competitive race, Elk Grove City Council member Pat Hume has started fundraising efforts and enters the four months leading up to the November 2018 election with over $112,000 cash in his campaign war chest.

Campaign finance reports filed last week with the Elk Grove City Clerk's office show that as of June 30, Hume had raised $27,600 for the six month period ending June 30. Hume started the period with $91,217, spent $6,508 and ended the reporting period with $112,609.

Hume received the donations from 56 contributors during the reporting period. Of those, 30 were individual donations and the balance came from a variety of business, interests groups, and labor unions. 

The largest donations came from five business interests who each gave the three-term incumbent $2,000 each. Those donors include the Committee for Home Ownership, Sacramento; Pacific Coast Companies, Rancho Cordova; Associated Builders and Contractors, Northern California Chapter, Livermore; LPAS Architects, Sacramento; and Brown Construction, West Sacramento.

Unlike 2014 when Hume, a Republican, won his third term representing the District 2 unopposed, this year he will be challenged by Andre Ramos. Although Ramos, a Democrat, acknowledges he will not be able to match Hume on a dollar for dollar basis in fundraising, he has committed to conducting a spirited grass-roots campaign.

Can I get a larger skillet-sized pot holder this time?
