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. Visit www.callnewspapers.com for results of county and state races.
