Linda Healy, the Democratic candidate for the 50th District State House seat, accumulated $4,902.95 in her campaign fund as of June 30, according to recently filed documents.

Healy, of Aurora, is challenging incumbent Republican Rep. Kay Hatcher, of Yorkville, for the seat that represents parts of south and west Kane County, including areas in St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia and North Aurora.

The war chest figure comes from a required semiannual campaign finance report the Friends of Linda Healy committee filed Aug. 2 with the Illinois State Board of Elections. The form was due July 20.

The report covers campaign receipts, loans and expenditures from Jan. 1 to June 30.

Healy did not have to itemize any of the contributions, as all were under $150. Her campaign treasurer wrote on the form that all were under $50.

The committee spent $162.50 - $150 on campaign buttons and $12.50 for bank account deposit slips. There were no loans or in-kind contributions to Healy's campaign.

Healy ran unopposed in the primary this spring, unlike Hatcher, who defeated two opponents for the GOP nomination.

As of June 30, the Friends of Kay Hatcher had a balance of $21,762.22. The report also shows Hatcher made a loan of $35,675.17 to her campaign.
