Final Mayoral Campaign Reports for 2010

The final financial statements for the 2010 San Leandro Mayor campaigns show that Joyce Starosciak raised a total of $16,513 during the reporting period from October 17, 2010 to December 31, 2010, including a $5,000 loan from Starotech, her business. Former Mayor Tony Santos raised $3,774, including a $1,000 personal loan to his campaign while Mayor Stephen Cassidy raised $5,608, including a $2,950 personal loan to his campaign.

Together, Cassidy, Santos, and Starosciak raised a total of $185,795 for the mayoral campaign, which stretches back to 2009. Starosciak, who finished third in the November 2010 election, raised $82,636, the most of all candidates. However, if you subtract the $21,589 of Starosciak's funds that came from the campaign account she used when she ran for City Council, she raised $61,047, just $3,000 more than Santos. Santos followed with $58,050 and then Cassidy, with $45,109.

Santos spent $37,314 on consultants, the most of all the mayoral candidates. Starosciak was next with $26,454, not including $5,000 spent on polling, and Cassidy was last, with no funds spent on consultants.

There are no campaign contribution limits in San Leandro, so individuals and businesses may contribute any amount of money to local campaigns. Donations of $99 or less do not have to be itemized, but candidates are required to report the source of any donation of $100 or greater.

Semi-annual campaign statements for active campaign accounts were due February 1, 2011, and are summarized below. No campaign statement from Sara Mestas had been filed as of February 2. Reports from Lou Filipovich and John Palau were not required since neither candidate raised nor spent more than $1,000.
