November 07, 2012 - Sixth District County Councilman Steve Stenger's committee, Citizens for Steve Stenger, raised more than 10 times the amount of his opponent, Republican Tony Pousosa, in his re-election bid.
Pousosa, a Ward 1 Green Park alderman, is challenging Stenger, who sought a second, four-year term on the council in Tuesday's election — after the Call went to press.
Candidates were required to file campaign finance reports eight days before the Nov. 6 election.
As of Oct. 25, Stenger raised a total of $663,796.11, while his expenditures reached $413,226.72.
From Oct. 1 to Oct. 25, Stenger received more than $14,600 in monetary contributions, including $2,500 from Stone, Leyton & Gershman, $500 from the Oakville Democratic Organization and $300 from former state Rep. Joe Treadway.
Among Stenger's expenditures during the reporting period were $3,630.09 to St. Louis Presort for mailing services, $2,034.21 to O.R. Pechman Inc. for printing and an incurred debt of $2,690 to Call Newspapers for advertising.
Additionally, Stenger contributed $250 to Sue Schoemehl for Senate.
Stenger began the reporting period with $201,044.20 on hand and at the close of the reporting period had $205,176.39 on hand and $104,690 in indebtedness.
Pousosa's committee, Citizens to Elect Tony Pousosa, raised a total of $1,325, while expenditures reached $4,245.13.
All contributions and expenditures were reported from Oct. 1 through Oct. 25.
Among those contributing to Pousosa's campaign were Sunset Hills Mayor Bill Nolan, $200; and the 100th District Republicans, $200.
Pousosa also reported receiving $400 in contributions from those giving $100 or less.
Among Pousosa's expenditures for the reporting period were $1,990.81 to O.R. Pechman Inc. for printing, $1,529 to Call Newspapers for advertising and $725.32 to Mark's Quick Print for door hangers.
