It looks like one tough race and one walk in the park.
If you judge political viability by money raised and spent, the Nov. 3 Stanton city council election might be a one-person contest in District 4 and a potential battle in District 2.
According to campaign financial statements filed with the city clerk’s office, Councilmember Carol Warren is the only candidate – among three – declaring she has raised money. Her Form 460 shows she has contributions of $8,805.17 and has spent $4,155.43. The form does not show a cash balance, but our math suggests a net of $4,649.74.
In the District 2 race, appointed Councilmember Hong Alyce Van has raised $4,137, spent $3,961.36 and has $1,146.26 on hand, and $147 in debt.
Challenger DeWayne Allen Normand has raised $16,220, spent $7,224.65 and has $7,725.35 on hand.
Josh Estrada and Jeff Jones – both District 4 candidates – filed forms indicating they would raise and spend less than $2000.
