The second round of campaign financial disclosures for the Humble ISD school board election show Martina Dixon raised the most money during the second reporting period (March 23- April 21.) She raised $5,980. Chris Parker had the second highest donated, with a reporting of $5,352. Ken Kirchhofer raised $2,908.53 and Robert Sitton raised $2,763.04. The reports are posted at HumbleISD.net.

Dixon benefited from a $2,500 donation from Rick Walker, a Kingwood resident who ran for Congress in 2018. The first round of reports showed he donated the same amount to Sitton, Parker and Janie Branham. U.S. Congressman Dan Crenshaw, who defeated Walker, donated $1,000 from his campaign to Sitton.

Two candidates, William Epperson and David Poopola, did not file a second report.

Six candidates, Wilbert Baker, James Banks, Marques Homes, Chase Stevens and Andrea Glazebrook, did not receive any donations during the second period.

Candidates spent their money on items such as yard signs, push cards, snacks, T-shirts, advertising and PayPal fees. Sitton reported spending $1,600 on a booth rental at Humble's Good Oil Days and $2,500 for a table at Boots and Bling, the Humble ISD Foundation event for the annual teachers of the year recognition. Clint Horn reported spending $3,000 on a campaign manager, $720 for “canvassers” and $1,120 for an individual described as a fundraiser. Dixon noted a $300 payment for a “consultant.” Several, Parker, Sitton and Kirchhofer, spent $1,000 or more with the Harris County GOP on mailers.

The candidates have been stationed at the three early voting locations, enduring long days, rain and occasional humidity.
