Candidate Aya Eneli is the top fundraiser and spender in the campaign for the Place 4 seat on the Killeen Independent School District Board of Trustees. The election is May 10.

The Texas Ethics Commission requires local candidates to file campaign finance reports 30 days and eight days before an election.

According to her report, Eneli received $4,461 in political contributions between Feb. 28 and March 31.

Killeen Mayor Dan Corbin and businessman Drayton McLane, of Temple, each donated $250 to Eneli’s campaign.

She also received nonmonetary donations of a sheet cake that fed 60 people and two gift baskets worth $150.

As of March 31, Eneli spent $5,621.72 on her campaign, including $2,351.13 on signs and banners, $2,623.08 on additional advertising and $647.51 on other campaign expenses.

Candidate Brockley Moore’s finance report stated his contributions of less than $50 was $2,001.56, and his total contributions were $1,256.43.

“I should have added those together,” Moore said Wednesday, pointing out his political contributions between Jan. 28 and March 31 were actually $3,257.99.

Contributions to his campaign included $200 from former Killeen Mayor Timothy Hancock, $100 from businessman Jim Wright, $350 from retired Killeen ISD educator Alice Douse and her family, and $150 from David and Mary Barr, the former executive director of Communities in Schools.

Marvin Rainwater’s contributions as of April 9 totaled $1,100, but his finance report did not list names of donors.

Rainwater has spent $1,935.12 on advertising for his campaign.

Lan Carter’s total contributions as of April 10 were $1,016. Her expenditures were $900.70.

Terry Delano, Killeen ISD school board vice president, is running unopposed for the Place 5 seat he holds. He hadn’t raised or spent any money as of the first finance report deadline.

The next deadline to file finance reports is May 2.

Early voting runs from April 28 through May 6.
