Like almost all her 10 Democratic competitors, the bulk of her spending came in purchasing signs with her campaign spending $4,426 for that expenditure.Martin hopes to succeed her boss, Carolyn Miller, in office. Miller is retiring after 20 years as property assessor, her departure bringing out 14 candidates, 11 of which are running for the Democratic nomination.Placing second in spending is Randy England who spent $6,165, about half of which was for signs.
