Supervisor Zack Scrivner, District 2

Eight of the nine candidates for Kern County Supervisor have accepted the voluntary campaign expenditure limits delineated under the Measure K-authorized county ordinance for the Nov. 6 general election, Auditor-Controller-County Clerk Mary B. Bedard announced Wednesday.

Only Zack Scrivner, seeking re-election in the 2nd District, does not appear on Bedard's list of signatories, meaning he has not bound himself to the $150,000 spending limit that applies to general-election supervisorial races. 

Measure K, passed by the voters of Kern County in November 2002, created a local ordinance governing voluntary campaign contributions and expenditures for local candidates. It applies to candidates running for Assessor-Recorder, Auditor-Controller-County Clerk, District Attorney, Sheriff-Coroner, Superintendent of Schools, member of the Board of Supervisors and Treasurer-Tax Collector.

Candidates who have accepted the voluntary expenditure limits for the general election, which holds individual contributions to $1,000 and political action committees to $3,000, are 2nd District challengers Whitney Weddell, Dalmas “Dal” Bunn, and Michael Biglay; 3rd District challenger Jeff Heinle and the incumbent, Mike Maggard; and 4th District challengers Grace Vallejo and Jose Gonzalez, and the incumbent, David Couch.

By declining the $150,000 limit, Scrviner is held to a more generous standard: $500 per person or $1,500 per PAC, but no overall campaign spending limit.

Of course Zack follows true to suit and will spend what ever he wants regardless to the needs of the many - makes one wonder where all that money came from in the first place. Scrivner and transparency are not words that go together.

Vavoom

Term limits for all!!!! serve one, serve two... and you are done. black money

He bought himself an expungement for his felony drug conviction along with his court ordered treatment plan. He'll attempt to buy this too.
No worries though - the people of the 2nd District in which he is responsible for know what he has done for the 2nd District and will let him know when they vote. Goodbye Zack.
