Campaign contributions reported

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The Guam Election Commission has released the final election campaign contributions and expenditures for the primary election.  Every candidate complied with the filing requirement with the exception of Jonathan Diaz who was running as an independent candidate for Guam delegate.  GEC officials say Diaz is also required to submit the documents to the federal election commission.

Maria Pangelinan, the GEC's executive director, said, "As the reports get submitted, we don't have a certified auditor in our mist here as a staff, so what we do is superficially review it and where we see discrepancies we will call the candidates back to clarify them."

Meantime the report shows Democrat incumbent Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr. with the most contributions at $94,000 and Republican senatorial candidate Brant McCreadie with $70,000 in contributions.  The report also shows that the Democrat Party of Guam had more than $65,000 in contributions compared to the Republican Party of Guam that reported just under $45,000.
