Two candidates are vying for the mayor’s seat in Prescott Valley, and both have filed their financial report showing receipts and disbursements through June 30 for campaign activities.

The second quarter campaign finance reports were released July 15 by Prescott Valley Town Clerk Diane Russell and can be found on the town’s website.

Candidate Kell Palguta has raised $8,000 so far for his campaign through two $4,000 personal loans, and as of June 30 has spent $7,951.

Candidate and PV Councilmember Michael Whiting has spent $2,245 of the $2,294 raised through two contributions of $1,491 from Susan Whiting and $49 from an individual donor.

An August pre-election finance report covering July 1 to Aug. 11 is due Aug. 18, and the third quarter report covering Aug. 12 through Sept. 30 is due Oct. 15.

Neither of the two council candidates, running unopposed, anticipated collecting or spending more than $500 each, and were not required to file a Statement of Organization.

Russell reminds voters the last day to register to vote is July 30. Those on the permanent early voting list should begin receiving their ballots after Aug. 1.

Primary Election Day is Aug. 28. Voters who have not mailed in their ballots may drop them off at the Civic Center Town Clerk’s Office, or in the elections drop box in the parking area.

Those not receiving early ballots may cast their votes at one of two Voting Centers: Step One Coffee House at 6719 E. 2nd St., or the Humboldt Unified School District office on the East Campus, 6411 N. Robert Rd.
