Clerk spending

Republican Zach Bonahoom is putting a financial push to take the city clerk’s position from Democrat Sandy Kennedy.

Bonahoom reported spending $25,844 so far this year in his effort to win election, more than double the $8,376 Kennedy reported spending.

His expenses included $4,329 to Specialized Printed Products for printing services and $9,303 to Custom Art Screen Printing for art and screen printing.

It may not be surprising that Bonahoom is spending so much more than a long-term incumbent with high name recognition, but Kennedy spent $27,408 in her 2003 campaign against John McGauley, who now serves as Allen County Recorder.
