Union County Dem campaign expenditures


Plainfield Assemblyman Jerry Green
is also chair of the Union County Democratic Committee.

ELEC has released campaign expense figures for county party organizations for the 2015 Primary Election (see story here).

Plainfield Assemblyman Jerry Green is chair of the Union County Democratic Committee, which weighed in as follows --


Funds Raised
$72,954
Monies Spent
$109, 567
Cash on Hand post-election
$59,717
Net Worth
$51,163

The difference between Cash on Hand and Net Worth reflects any unpaid bills or loans outstanding.

With a little over 31,000 Democratic votes cast in Union County, this means the party spent an average of $3.51 for each vote.

These figures do not reflect the election of County Committee members (same a municipal committee members), which are outside the purview of ELEC -- hence Jerry Green's mailings from "Union County's Committee" -- and constitute an entirely separate campaign cost structure.

Ain't cheap, this politics business.
