The TAB has published a report — complete with several charts and graphs — showing how much mayoral candidates Ruthanne Fuller and Scott Lennon have raised. It’s worth going to Wicked Local to see the charts be here’s two excerpts:
Ruthanne Fuller, the current councilor-at-large who topped this preliminary election, collected more than $284,000 in campaign donations as of the Oct. 5 filing with the OCPF. Of that sum, approximately 61 percent came from Newton residents. She had more donors from Chestnut Hill and Newton Centre than from any other zip code, according to the OCPF data.
City Council President Scott Lennon, who finished a close second in the preliminary mayoral contest, received more than $231,000 in campaign donations as of the Oct. 5 filing. Of the money raised, roughly 68 percent came from residents of Newton. More of his donors came from the 02458 zip code, which covers the northeastern part of the city near the Brighton and Watertown lines (Newton Corner and Nonantum), than from any other zip code. His second-strongest base of financial support, based on campaign contributions, was West Newton.
