The 2020 election season is coming soon, and we are preparing for the July 7th Primary.  Aside from formulating the Kingsley and Varnerin campaign, we also have our eye on managing finances.  

We want to share our commitments regarding ethical campaign finances. Jeanne Kingsley shared, “In 2017, when I last ran for Town Council, I spent $5,000 on my campaign. I’m not sure why the spending is out of control now.”  Jeff added, "We are a small town, and we should not accept lavish campaign spending levels.”.

Over the last three years, campaign spending has gotten out of control and numerous campaign finance concerns have surfaced at Town Council meetings. These questionable activities are deeply concerning. Councilwoman Jeanne Kingsley and Jeff Varnerin vow to adhere to the campaign finance tenants detailed below.
