Giglio outpaces Walter in fundraising through July

07/17/2015 6:00 AM |

According to the July 15 campaign finance disclosure reports on file with the state Board of Elections, Councilwoman Jodi Giglio has more than party support to defeat incumbent Supervisor Sean Walter.

Through two separate committees, the councilwoman has raised a combined total of $66,500 since January, far more than Mr. Walter, who raised about $39,000.

Ms. Giglio, who started the year with less than $500 in the bank, raised $34,685 on her Jodi Giglio for Town Council committee and $31,820 on her Friends of Jodi Giglio committee.

Mr. Walter started the year with over $18,000 left over from his previous campaign.

After expenses, both have about the same amount of funds left: Mr. Walter has about $34,000 remainaing and Ms. Giglio, $38,000.

Anthony Coates, the Democratic candidate, reported $1,900 raised, and nothing spent, on his “Better Riverhead” campaign committee. Mr. Coates originally launched BetterRiverhead.com as an “online civic association,” he said at the time.

He also raised $190 and spent $161 on another committee called “Build a Better Riverhead,” which had a balance of $28 remaining.

Here’s a roundup of Mr. Walter’s contributions of interest:

• Dennis Kelleher of H2M engineers gave $1,000, as did H2M itself.

• J. Kings Food Service Professionals, which is seeking approvals for hard cider mill on Sound Avenue, gave a total of $2,000 since January

• Yaeko Kim of Selden gave $2,000.

• Suffolk Theater and Second Street firehouse owner Bob Castaldi gave a total of $750.

• Island Water Park at EPCAL gave $750.

• Thirty West Main gave $500.

• Baiting Hollow Restaurant Group, which is where Lobster Roll North is located, gave $500.

Here’s a roundup of Ms. Giglio’s contributions of interest:

•Dennis Kelleher of H2M engineers gave $500.

• Bouy One owner Robert Pollifrone gave $1,000.

• J. Kings Food Service Professionals gave $500.

• Henry Chlupsa, the president of  engineering firm Dvirka and Bartilucci, gave $890.

• Flyboard LI gave $300.

• Grant Havasy of Blue and Gold Homes on Middle Road gave $500.

• Wayne Steck, one of the co-owners, with Ms. Giglio, of the Summerwind apartment complex in Riverhead, gave $740.

The latest filings also show the Riverhead Republican committee has spent just about as much as it has raised since January, which is nearly five times more than the amount the Riverhead Democratic committee has raised.

While the Republican committee has raised nearly $50,000 and has about $15,160 remaining to spend, the Democratic committee has about $10,800 left in its account, records show.

Anthony Coates, the Democratic candidate for supervisor, along with Republican council candidate Tim Hubbard and Democratic council candidate Laura Jens-Smith, had not filed their campaign disclosures as of Thursday. Those reports were due Wednesday.
