Outgoing St. Helena Mayor donates campaign funds to charity

ST. HELENA — Outgoing Mayor Alan Galbraith donated the remaining $7,746 from his campaign account last week to charity.

According to reports filed at City Hall, Galbraith’s campaign received and spent $26,861, including the new donation. Galbraith had previously lent $8,000 to his own campaign, but he forgave the loan and donated the remaining funds to the nonprofit St. Helena Preschool for All.

City Councilmember Geoff Ellsworth defeated Galbraith in the Nov. 6 election and will be sworn in as mayor at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, at Vintage Hall.

Ellsworth’s campaign hasn’t filed any cumulative financial reports since the election. As of October, his campaign had raised $46,471.99, spent $36,543.49, and owed $39,800.
