Candidates Report Money Raised and Spent With a Week to Go Before Election


Editor’s Note: The campaign amounts for both James L. Morrison and Michael Morgan in the school board race were transposed and have now been corrected. Furthermore, the candidates have asked for the loan amounts that they have supplied to the campaigns also be disclosed, so we added those on the bottom.

Burbank candidates did their final filings before the November 8 election this past week.

Candidates have been busy raising money to get their voices heard, lawn signs made and distributed, and setting up meet and greets in the community.

Here is what each City Council Candidate has raised and spent to this point. All candidates have filed paperwork on time. (Candidates listed in the order they appear on the ballot):

Since the School Board has decided to have the County of Los Angeles handle their election instead of the City of Burbank, information is a little harder to get a hold of. The second Form 460 filing was due last week, and it is not known if the candidate missed the filing or the County has not yet posted it.
