City Council District 2 incumbent Delia Garza leads challenger Wesley Faulkner in political donations so far this election season, according to the latest round of campaign finance reports submitted to election officials Tuesday.
Casey Ramos, who is also running for District 2, had not filed his campaign report as of press time.
Every opposed candidate in the Nov. 8 election must file a contributions and expenditures report 30 days before the election. This latest round of reports, the first mandated disclosure since this summer, covers all financials from July 1 to Sept. 29, according to the Texas Ethics Commission.
Here is how much donation money each candidate has earned and spent for the District 2 City Council race during that timeframe:
Delia Garza: $20,797 contributions, $16,500.14 expenditures, 148 contributors. Notable contributors include South by Southwest Conference & Festivals and State Rep. Armando Walle (D-Houston).
Wesley Faulkner: $2,692 contributions, $3,384.39 expenditures, 49 contributors.
Casey Ramos: Campaign finance report was not available as of Oct. 12.
In Austin City Council races, donations are not allowed to exceed $350 per contributor per election.
The next campaign finance report deadline is Oct. 31, or eight days before the election.
