      Comment
  • The two candidates for the Phelps County Division 2 associate judge in the 25th Judicial Circuit are showing they are willing to spend significant campaign money for the job.
    Retain Judge Ken Clayton, the committee supporting incumbent Democrat Ken Clayton, who was appointed at the beginning of 2013 to complete the term of Judge William Hickle who won election as circuit judge, filed its statement of committee organization March 3.
    The committee’s deputy treasurer is Carla Clayton, the candidate’s wife, and the treasurer is Emma Brent.
    Republican challenger Mark Calvert, an attorney in private practice, is supported by Citizens for Calvert.
    The statement of committee organization filed May 6 notes the treasurer for Citizens for Calvert is Tony Froehlich and the deputy treasurer is Tammy Martin.
    The Retain Judge Ken Clayton committee has already filed two quarterly reports.
    The quarterly report due April 15 was electronically filed April 10, and it covers Feb. 12 through March 31.
    It shows $1,000 in loans and $1,400.16 of in-kind contributions for a total of $2,400.16.
    Expenditures were $26.80.
    Money on hand at the end of the first reporting period was $973.20.
    Clayton made three contributions, all in-kind: $609.64 Feb. 20 and $622.25 and $168.27 both March 13.
    Clayton made a loan of $1,000 to his own campaign March 3 with the repayment to be made from net revenues after the Nov. 4 election.
    Expenditures were $26.80 for office supplies.
    In the committee’s July 15 quarterly report, covering April 30 through June 30, receipts were reported as $1,515 for the period, bringing the total for the calendar year or election cycle to $3,915.16.
    Expenditures for the period were $555.86, bringing the total to $582.66 for the election cycle.
    Money on hand at the end of the reporting period was $1,932.34. That figure comes from $973.20 at the beginning of the report period, plus $1,515 in receipts, minus $555.86 in expenditures.
    The committee remains in debt for $1,000.
    Contributors were Sue Brown, retired, $100 May 21; John Garrabrant, an assistant prosecuting attorney in Phelps County, $100 May 16; Dawn Clayton, an attorney, $1,000 June 1; and Robert and Linda Laudon Trust, St. James, retired, $100 June 17.
    In addition to those $1,300 in itemized contributions, the campaign received $40 in anonymous contributions from people giving $25 or less and $175 from people giving $100 or less. The names were not included on the report. That all adds up to $1,515, with $1,475 requiring a record of names.
    Non-itemized expenditures were $56.67 for political advertising and $24.50 for postage.
    Itemized expenditures were $125 to The Rolla Daily News June 2 for advertising and $198 to The Rolla Daily News May 27 for an ad in the Phelps County Fair book.
    The committee also paid $151.69 to Scott’s Printing June 13 for printing of rack cards.
    The committee filed a contractual relationship report noting that contributor Dawn Clayton, attorney, has a $44,000 contract with the 25th Judicial Circuit Judicial Office that runs from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014. The purpose of the contractual relationship is for Dawn Clayton to provide guardian ad litem services to children in foster care in the circuit.
