Earlier this week, we blogged about how much money the candidates for the San Diego Unified school board have raised since January — and from who.
But candidate Kevin Beiser pointed out that his campaign actually started pulling in funds even earlier than January. So now we’re giving you the totals for their whole campaigns to give you a bigger picture. First, let’s break down the race to represent the northeastern areas of the school district:
Kevin Beiser raised $30,934 over the course of his campaign, making him the fundraising leader overall. Katherine Nakamura raised $23,139, including a $500 loan and $500 in nonmonetary contributions. She was the strongest fundraiser since January but had raised nothing last year, when Beiser got an early start and raised more than half of his overall money.
Meanwhile, Stephen Rosen has raised $11,698 and bolstered his campaign with a $90,000 loan to himself, giving him the most money, but less donations than his opponents.
Now for a look at the candidates in the coastal district:
Scott Barnett has brought in $7,770 but his haul includes $1,025 in loans and $3,745 in nonmonetary contributions. John de Beck pulled in $16,220 overall. And finally, Michelle Crisci pledged not to raise or spend more than $1,000 on the race.
