Quick Campaign Finance Check-In

Is it me, or is this campaign season boring? It’s not exactly the Mortal Kombat that freaks like me enjoy watching. My perception could be due to the fact that my district councilor is unopposed. Anecdotally – things have been pretty sleepy in my neck of the woods. Only two at-large candidates have hit my door (Erik Gitschier and Bobby Tugbiyele) and I’m not hearing reports of much action in other districts either.

However, there’s still about six weeks left, so all that could change before November 7th.

Until then, here’s a look at where the candidates stand in terms of finance.

[All data pulled from The last round of reports available was 8/31/23. Candidates may have more or less as of 9/22/23 but we won’t know until early October. “Amount Spent” sum is all expenditures from 1/01/23 to 8/31/23. I take no responsibility for any shoddy math or data-entry errors – but if you find something glaring – drop me a line.]
