Campaign Finance Numbers – Maryland State Delegate District 12 – August 2018

That is not one of my better graphics…I will need to work on that for future write ups in this race. Maryland State Delegate in District 12 has six candidates…so a lot to look over for this race…here are some summary numbers for each candidate:

So here are some general observations with the latest numbers:

The Democrats (as a whole) have a BIG money advantage…and spent it like crazy on the latest filings. The very competitive primary was a big part of that spending…and left Feldmark short on funds…but her other Team 12 members have enough cash on hand to help her out going forward. Republicans are thankful to have Harris in this race…she is the one candidate on that side of the ticket active with fundraising and spending. She is basically carrying that team (in regards to money). Here is some additional details you might find interesting:


  • Filed a Affidavit of Limited Contributions and Expenditures: For those not familiar with Affidavit of Limited Contributions and Expenditures, it states: “Pursuant to §13-305 of the Election Law Article, Annotated Code of Maryland, we, the undersigned Chairman and Treasurer, hereby declare that we do not intend to receive contributions or make expenditures in the cumulative amount of $1,000 or more”


  • Has not filed his report as of yet. This has become a trend with his campaign. This is a scary trend if you ask me.


  • Raised a decent amount of money ($1,653.00 in contributions, $1,602.00 in tickets, $225.00 from other campaigns and $1,800.00 in loans)
  • Redmer, Al Jr. Friends Of provided the $225.00 to the campaign
  • No other notable items of interest on the report


  • Only had $800 in contributions…the other incoming funds came from:
  • Campaign Transfers:
    • Guzzone, Guy Friends Of – $2,000
    • Kasemeyer, Ed For Senate Committee – $5,000
  • Maryland PAC’s:
    • Motor Truck PAC, Maryland – $250
    • MSEA’s Fund For Children And Public Education PAC – $250
    • MSEA’s Fund For Children And Public Education PAC – $750
  • Non- Federal Out of State PACs:
    • MD/DC State Council SEIU – $250


  • Had $2,585.00 in campaign contributions….the big contributors ($1,000 or more) were:
    • First Colonies Anesthesia Assoc – $1,000
    • Lewis, Jean W – $1,000
  • Transfers from other campaigns included:
    • Kasemeyer, Ed For Senate Committee – $5,000


  • Took in $2,150.00 in campaign contributions…one BIG contributor ($1,000 or more) was:
    • I.M.A., Inc. dba Merriweather Post Pavilion – $1,250
  • Took a little money from Non- Federal Out of State PACs:
    • Baltimore Washington Construction & Public Employees Laborers PAC – $250
  • Has outstanding bills in the amount of $2,338.49

Here is my summary of items listed above for each party:


  • Have to be thankful for Harris…because without her filing they would have nothing to report this financial cycle
  • Cockey never seems to get his reporting done on time…how big of a concern should that be for voters?
  • Russell and Cockey have really only reported ALCE’s in their most recent filings.


  • Retiring State Senator Kasemeyer has put in $10,000 in this race this past election cycle (that is pretty significant)
  • 2 of the 3 candidates took in a little bit of PAC money…some people are interested in that information
  • Feldmark is underwater right now (cash on hand vs outstanding bills). A transfer from the Team 12 Slate may be needed so she can pay her campaign bills
  • Feldmark took a decent amount of money from “I.M.A., Inc. dba Merriweather Post Pavilion” in this financial cycle…and a lot of money this election cycle ($5,250.00 to date). Mary Kay Sigaty took a lot of grief (on social media) over taking money from them in the State Senate 12 primary…will this be an issue for Feldmark?

Here is a link to find all of the campaign reports for any candidate…in case you want to go lookup the actual reports:

I am planning on a lot more reports in the coming days…so stay tuned.
