Try 3 months for $3

This is the latest in a series of posts about mid-year campaign finance reports for area state legislators and potential opponents.

Morgan Zegers, a college student seeking the Republican nomination to challenge state Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner, D-Round Lake, in 2018, has continued to build groundwork for her campaign, attending numerous party and candidate events over the past six months.

Zegers’ mid-year campaign finance report, filed with the state Board of Elections, shows expenditures for Zegers to attend events held by the Women’s Republican Club of Saratoga County, Town of Ballston Republican Committee, Saratoga County Young Republicans, Albany County Young Republicans, and Saratoga County Conservative Party.

Her campaign also paid for Zegers to attend fund-raising events for four town and county Republican candidates.

Zegers had $10,039 in her campaign fund, as of July 13, a sizable amount for a challenger at this point in the race, but far less than Woerner, who had $37,417 in her campaign fund.

Zegers campaign raised $5,363 between Jan. 13 and July 13, about a third of it in small dollar contributions, and spent $1,694.

Her largest contributions were $1,000 from Jerry Ovens of Binghampton and an in-kind contribution of $1,000 from Jack Moulton, a staff campaign adviser to U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro.

Moulton contributed the value of his web site design services.

Other contributions of $200 or more are as follows:

  • Jill Homan, Washington, D.C., $500; Dan Van Wagenen, Clifton Park, $650; Robert Hayes, Saratoga Springs, $250.

Zegers, of Ballston Spa, is slated to graduate in May 2018 from American University in Washington.
