From Cecil Times —-
Dan Slater, a candidate for Cecil County Sheriff in the Republican primary, picked up the pace of his fundraising and broadened his financial appeal to voters throughout the county in recent months. But going into the Sept. 14 primary, his campaign is all but broke and poorly positioned for a general election campaign.
Slater is the leading Republican primary challenger to incumbent Sheriff Barry Janney, who in the past has raised up to six figures in his well-funded campaigns.
Slater got an early start on his uphill battle last year and in January filed his first campaign finance report. As The Cecil Times reported in January here: http://ceciltimes.wordpress.com/2010/01/25/slater-for-cecil-county-sheriff-gop-challenger-is-poor/ Slater’s initial fundraising report showed he had concentrated his fundraising efforts in his North East area homebase. He raised a total of $5,965 but spent $4,813, leaving him with nearly $1,152 in the bank.
In his latest campaign report, Slater has picked up the pace, and geography, of his campaign fundraising. . . .
