GAINESVILLE - With three weeks remaining until election day, the latest campaign finance disclosure reports for the candidates running for Hall County offices July 31 show county commission chairman Tom Oliver and tax commissioner hopeful Darla Eden ahead in money raised for the period ending June 30.

Oliver reported raising $37,600 during the period, while Eden reported taking in $34,650.25. Eden reported cash on hand as of June 30 of $9,972.07. Oliver's balance on hand was $24,946.70.
Of the other candidates in the tax commissioner's race, Kent Henderson reported total contributions of $16,181.93 with $7,433,61 cash on hand.
