On Tuesday, the Austin Monitor reported that the majority of Council candidates had filed their campaign finance reports due eight days before the election. Filings from three candidates failed to make the cutoff to appear on the city clerk’s website Monday, and were posted Tuesday. Vanessa Fuentes and Casey Ramos are running against David Chincanchan for the District 2 seat being vacated by Delia Garza, who is running unopposed for Travis County attorney. Fuentes reported collecting $8,137 in contributions in the last month from 82 contributors. She still had nearly $20,000 in the bank as of Oct. 24. Ramos’ report shows he collected $2,625 from 11 contributors and spent $4,074 over the past month. According to the report, he had $1,330 left in the bank. In District 6, Deedra Harrison is running against incumbent Jimmy Flannigan as well as Jennifer Mushtaler and Mackenzie Kelly. Harrison reported that four contributors gave her $1,050, and after spending $862, she still had $1,435 left in the bank.
