John Foster, Shannan Moon file campaign disclosures in Nevada County sheriff’s race

John Foster has received about four times the amount of contributions as his opponent Shannan Moon in their race to become the next sheriff of Nevada County, campaign disclosures showed.

Foster, a former Grass Valley police chief, started with $1,000. He received $23,907.54 in contributions from Dec. 12 to June 30. He’s spent $22,422.82, leaving him $2,484.72 in the bank.

Moon, a captain with the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, received $5,963 — with $3,500 of that in a loan from herself — between Jan. 1 and June 30. She spent $2,878.71, leaving her with $3,084.29.

Both candidates have spent a portion of their contributions on campaign consultants, records show.

Foster paid Joey Jordan $10,500, or 46.8 percent of his expenditures, to consult his campaign.

Moon spent $2,000 — 69.5 percent of her expenditures — with Robins, McNamara & Perkins, of Nevada City, on campaign consultation.
