Randy Fairbanks is leading incumbent Assessor of Property Marty Haynes in fundraising for the first quarter. However, Mr. Fairbanks put in a significant portion of his revenue. He took $30,166 from his County Commission campaign fund and loaned the campaign another $25,000.

Mr. Fairbanks, who is chairman of the County Commission, reported $105,814.39 in income.

Assessor Haynes, a former member of the County Commission, said he took in $77,966.

The Fairbanks campaign said it spent $33,682, while the Haynes team reported spending $25,140.

County Commissioners Sabrena Smedley and Chester Bankston are backing the Fairbanks campaign, while Commissioner Greg Martin is siding with the incumbent. Sheriff Jim Hammond contributed $200 to the Fairbanks effort. Register Marc Gravitt and Rep. Esther Helton were Haynes contributors.

The Homebuilders Association is betting on the incumbent with a $4,000 gift.

Both are Republicans. The primary election is March 3. The winner of the primary will be the assessor since there are no other candidates.
