Riverhead Republicans continue to outpace Democrats in spending ahead of November’s election.
Since January, GOP candidates have outspent their opponents by more than three times, according to the most recent campaign disclosure files available from the state Board of Elections.
Riverhead Republicans have both raised and spent far more to date than their Democratic opponents on campaigns for this fall’s town election, with Supervisor Sean Walter raising the most campaign money, followed by Republican Councilwoman Jodi Giglio and the Republican committee, according to the most recent campaign disclosure reports from the state Board of Elections.
Riverhead Democrats are touting their roster of prospective candidates as the first all-woman slate to run for Town Board.
The trio of “Riverhead moms” has “extensive experience serving the public, raising families and working with community leaders and residents,” a press release from the Democrats states. “They also bring a new, common sense perspective on resolving concerns and issues that have long troubled our town.”
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.
