Ledbetter outspends incumbent Miner in District 4 commission race

Christy Chalmers, Tribune News Service

MINDEN – Republican District 4 County Commission challenger Kirk Ledbetter raised and spent almost twice as much as incumbent Don Miner, campaign disclosure reports filed with the county clerk show.

The two are heading into a Sept. 1 primary showdown along with Republican Robert Pruett.

Ledbetter’s report says he collected contributions totaling $23,775 through Aug. 19 and spent $20,232.65 in addition to the $100 filing fee.

Miner raised $12,143 and spent $10,398.81.

Pruett has had no contributions. His expenditures total $2,107, according to the Douglas County clerk.

Janet Murphy, an independent challenger, reported no contributions but said she spent a total of $960 for signs, campaign paraphernalia and the filing fee.

A list of contributors was not included with the copy of Ledbetter’s report that was supplied to the Tribune News Service. Miner’s report lists a donation of $2,000 from Prim Associates Agency; $1,000 donations from Skyland Realty, Mountain Ventures, Lake Tahoe Oil Co. and Carol Lane, all of Zephyr Cove; $500 each from Harveys Tahoe Management, Rick Gardner and Nevada Banking Co. and smaller donations from several other individuals.

Miner’s chief expenses came from print and radio advertising, including $2,100 for a mailing service.

Ledbetter’s report says the bulk of his expenses went to Survey Research Systems and Jim Denton Associates, Inc., a Reno firm.

The Republican candidates for the District 4 commission seat, which represents Lake Tahoe, will square off Tuesday in the primary election.
