More on that city campaign money

Posted by on Fri, Mar 29, 2013 at 2:40 PM

This week, after hours of data entry and spread-sheet misery, we were able to do some number-crunching on the money that has flowed into the Colorado Springs City Council races.

Some of the more interesting things that we found:

Keith King
  • Kirk Woundy
  • Reason to smile: Keith King has run away with the top-fundraiser title.

• The top donor is the Police Protective Association PAC with $18,000.

Keith King, with $59,819, has raised the most money in his District 3 bid.

• King is followed as top fundraiser by his opponent, Brandy WIlliams with $31,634 However, $17,500 of Williams' money comes from one donor: her mother. And $10,459 of King's money is leftover from his Senate campaign committee.

More number-crunching revealed that, of the total money raised by March 15 — $312,454 — $57,499 came from political committees. Another $53,268 came from business interests.

The vast majority of the money spent on these campaigns has come from inside Colorado Springs.

Of the business and PAC money, only $24,545 came from outside the city. And only $11,080, or 3.5 percent of the total money, came from out of state.
