Two city council races—one in Colleyville and one in Southlake—are attracting the highest amount of campaign contributions among nine races on the ballot, according to the most recent reports filed this month.
City council and school board candidates running in the May 4 elections were required to submit campaign finance reports April 4. These reports show how much candidates have received in political contributions as well as how much they have spent during the first few months of their campaigns.
The reports generally cover money received and spent between Jan. 1 and March 26, though some candidates have included funds beyond those dates. The next set of reports is due by April 26.
Voters will weigh in on nine contested races for city council and school board seats in Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake. Early voting continues through April 30. Election day is May 4. Here is how much each candidate has raised so far.
