Incumbents lead council races in funds

Three candidates for Medford City Council have spent &

36;9,190.80 and raised almost &

36;12,000 through late October.

Expenses include such things as yard signs, voter pamphlet fees, mailers, fund-raisers and other advertising.

The second round of pre-election contributions and expenditures reports for Medford City Council candidates were recently received by City Recorder Beverly Sandblast. The final reports for Tuesday's election are due in late November.

The largest contributions went to Bob Strosser, the incumbent for the Ward 4 position, and Claudette Moore, the incumbent for the Ward — position. They each received &

36;1,000 from JACPAC, a Realtor-affiliated political action committee. Both are real estate agents.

Moore's spending totals &

36;2,901.45, and her opponent, John Statler, has a total of &

36;1,934.03 listed so far.

Of the five candidates, only three turned in reports. The reports are only required when contributions exceed &

36;2,000.

Susan McKenzie, who is running against Bob Strosser, did not turn in a report. Jim Key, the incumbent for Ward 1, and Skip Knight, the incumbent for Ward 2, also did not turn in reports. Knight and Key are unopposed.

So far in the campaign, Strosser has raised a total of &
