Crow Leads Fundraising in District 4 San Leandro City Council Race

In the District 4 San Leandro City Council race, Chris Crow narrowly out-raised his opponents, reporting $4,505 in contributions. Darlene Daevu reported raising $3,300 and Benny Lee reported raising $2,288. Justin Hutchison had not filed a statement as of October 8, 2012. However, Daevu and Lee ended the reporting period with more cash on hand because of personal loans that each made to their campaigns.

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 more.
