Issaquah candidate campaign funding

Many candidates chose to raise less than $5,000, allowing them not to report.

Four Issaquah city council positions are up for grabs this November and candidates are raising funding, so the Reporter looked at the Public Disclosure Commission’s filings.

Of the four races, only positions 2 and 3 are competitive, with positions 4 and 6 remaining single-candidate districts.

In the Position 2 race, Zach Hall had raised nearly $1,800 as of Aug. 6, according to the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC). Other than $145, all of Hall’s contributions were “individual donors” from 11 donors. No expenditures were reported.

Running against Hall is Michele Kemper, who chose to run as a mini-filer, meaning she doesn’t have to report with the PDC if she agrees to raise less than $5,000.

In the Position 3 race, Tim Flood is running against Barbara de Michele. Flood chose to run as a mini-filer. De Michele has raised more than $8,200, with $7,150 coming from individual donors. She had spent more than $2,000, including $575 for graphic design services and $500 to The Connections Group for consulting services.

Lindsey Walsh was running unopposed for the Position 4 seat and chose to register as a mini-filer. In the Position 6 race, Victoria Hunt was running unopposed and also chose to run as a mini-filer.
