Bartosh raises $6,134 as presiding commissioner race enters final phase

Incumbent presiding commissioner John Bartosh goes into the final phase of his campaign with at least $5,500 to spend, according to his eight-days-before-election report filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission.

The report shows Bartosh had only $38.95 in his campaign account at the end of June, but raised $6,134 during the first three weeks of July and spent $664.95, leaving him with $5,508 in the bank.

Bartosh's biggest contributor, giving $1,000 apiece, were Frank Bartosh and Phillip Camerer, Neosho. Giving $500 were Steve Beimdiek and Jim Woestman and U. S. Assets Recovery, Joplin.

Kevin Checkett, Carthage, and Tony Williams, Carthage, contributed $200 and $150, respectively.

Bartosh received $2,234 in contributions of $100 or less, according to the report. He paid $664.95 to Davis Advertising for signs.

Bartosh's opponent, former Joplin R-8 Board of Education member, Mike Landis, has not filed his eight-days-before-election report. The reports are due by midnight tonight.

My vote is for Bartosh. Landis is part of the reason Joplin Shcools had to take a $30 million dollar loan. Jasper county can not afford to have Landis at the helm

Wasn't it Landis that said "What the voters say doesn't matter" when he was still on the Joplin School board?

Landis - just say no
He may end up having a little baby tantrum and quit the commissioner job. Just like he did on school board
He’s too risky to say the least.
