Ravenswood candidate fund-raising filing

July 23, 2010
By
Democratic candidates are easily out classing their Republican and Green Party opponents in fund raising, according to filings this month with the Illinois State Board of Elections. The semi-annual filings, combined with statements by candidates for Congress filed with the Federal Elections Commission, only looking at candidates that reside in or represent the Ravenswood area were examined. They show Democratic Party candidates held more than $10 million at the beginning of the year while Republican candidates held just over $9,000. The Republican candidates were unable to make up ground during the year, raising just $38,384.40, considered by some political analysts to be insufficient to even run a single aldermanic challenge. Democrats meanwhile, raised $6,519,206.55 in the past six months, the reports indicate. Even Democratic candidates running for 2011 municipal elections raised more than the combined total of the Republican slate. Aldermen Patrick O'Connor, Eugene Schulter and Richard Mell raised $94,716.26. Only one aldermanic challenger, Ameya Pawar in the 47th Ward, filed a campaign report. He raised $8,857.98 in the last six months.  In addition to Pawar, the 40th Ward will see Jason Honig challenge O'Connor. -->
