McKee's lieutenant gov run official

CUMBERLAND – E. Craig Dwyer, a long-time member of the Town Council, will serve as campaign treasurer as Mayor Daniel McKee attempts to move into the lieutenant governor’s seat in November of 2014.

Democrat McKee, who just filed a campaign finance report that lists cash on hand at $151,280, made the statewide campaign official with the notice of organization paperwork filed with the state Board of Elections on July 25.

McKee, who was unopposed last year in his sixth run for mayor, has slowly been accumulating campaign funds since expending none in the 2012 mayoral race. The total includes a $50,000 loan to himself, which raises the total amount of unpaid loans to himself over the years to $73,564.

McKee has yet to name a campaign manager, but the name is expected soon. See Thursday's Valley Breeze for more details and a complete list of campaign contributors.
