Candidates for the Cy-Fair ISD board of trustees election coming up Nov. 2 have poured thousands of dollars into their campaigns, according to the first round of campaign finance reports published at www.cfisd.net.

Some have taken out loans or used personal funds above and beyond donations to cover campaign expenses, such as advertising, web design, consulting, social media, signs and flyers.
