Slater for Cecil Sheriff: GOP Challenger is Poor

  Dan Slater, a Republican challenger in this year’s GOP primary to incumbent Cecil County Sheriff Barry Janney, is working hard but having little real success in his fundraising efforts, according to state election records.

   State documents show that Slater has raised a total of $5,965, while spending $4,813 on the usual printing, bumper stickers, etc. costs to get his name known around the county.

   That leaves Slater with just $1,152 in cash on hand to mount  his campaign at this point. Of course, Campaign 2010 is still young and he may still come up with more substantial funds. But it is a measure of Slater’s lack of name recognition with the general public that he is so short on donations, and the all-important cash on hand, at this stage of the election season.

     Slater’s top donor is a Rising Sun business, RKP Investments, LLC, with a $1,000 contribution to Slater’s campaign.  Most of Slater’s other much smaller donations are from Rising Sun and North East  businesses and residents.

    Someone needs to remind him that Sheriff candidates run countywide. Slater has no donations from southern Cecil County residents or businesses and just a smattering of Elkton-area supporters.

    Slater has a detailed website outlining his views on the issues: http://www.slaterforsheriff.com
