Fri. 10:25 pm: Polivka is big spender in fall campaign

WARREN – The three-way race for Trumbull County Commissioner is financially one sided as incumbent Democrat Dan Polivka already is spending at least four times the amount of his closest rival for the seat and still has cash to burn.

He is being challenged by Republican Mary Williams and write-in candidate Todd Johnson.

Polivka started out with a war chest of more than $94,000 when he filed his most recent campaign finance report, which was released earlier this week. The longtime politician has spent more than $45,000, leaving him with $49,053 to spend to finish the race if he chooses to empty his campaign’s bank account.

However, it is unlikely Polivka will need to spend that kind of cash during the last days of campaigning.
