District 5 Campaign: Dollars Raised and Spent

By The Denver North Star Staff

The following is compiled from publicly available information on the state campaign finance database and is current through the Oct. 3 reporting period. The next report from candidates is due Oct. 16. More information on a candidate’s fundraising and spending are at tracer.sos.colorado.gov.

In past years, the majority of spending on school board races has not come directly from the campaigns, but independent expenditure (IE) committees, which often report spending late. Information on IE spending was not available when this edition of The Denver North Star went to press.
