Reports on campaign donations from previous candidates reveal both the past and the future.

A period in the administration of municipal politics came to an end when former Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke was required to file annual campaign financial reports. This practice marked the end of a period in the administration of municipal politics. On the 17th of January, 2023, Republican Winnecke handed in his year-end report, which was thereafter followed by paperwork that disbanded his political group.

According to the documentation, the committee did not have any finances available to it. Although he had spent more than $1.2 million on one of his re-election campaigns, the former mayor, who had served for three years, did not run for office again in the previous year. This was despite the fact that he had brought in and spent more than $1.2 million on one of his campaigns.

He received donations of $18,000 in addition to the more than $200,000 that he already had; nevertheless, he spent all of that money in 2023 and was so successful that he was able to shut down the entire business. When it comes to other former candidates who have not submitted an application for public office in a significant amount of time at this point, the annual accounting of how much money is still in the kitty is a symbol of hope that has not yet been realized.

Or, at the very least, keeping the door open at all times. In spite of the fact that the bulk of them do not have anything even somewhat comparable to the amount that a mayor typically raises, they do not require as much either. According to Jason Ashworth, a Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for the office of sheriff of Vanderburgh County in 2022,

the $1,043.62 that is still floating around in his campaign account could be seed money for a future campaign for either him or his wife, Kendyl. Kendyl Ashworth is also a potential candidate for the position. “She’s in her 31st year of school teaching, and she obviously is very invested in (Evansville Vanderburgh School Corp.), the kids in the corporation and in the community,” said Ashworth in an interview.
