Roesch, Tanaka Lead in Latest Round of Campaign Fundraising

Donations continue at a brisk pace for some, while for others they have slowed considerably as election day nears.

Mayor Casey Tanaka raised $11,500 from donors supporting his reelection bid over the last three weeks, far more than any other candidate in Coronado's mayoral and City Council races.

This brings the incumbent's campaign war chest to nearly $18,000. His list of donors nearly tripled, up to 154 from 55. Council candidate Jean Roesch raised more, but most of it came from her support of her own campaign.

Councilman Michael Woiwode, also an incumbent, raised $2,925 to bring his total contributions to $12,420 from 130 donors. He also donated $1,000 to his own campaign.

Roesch, one of five people seeking two seats on the council, raised $980 from 11 donors, but contributed $12,000 of her own money to her campaign from Oct. 1-20, the period covered by the latest round of financial statements. This is in addition to the $8,100 she previously pumped into her race.

Fundraising activity for the remaining candidates was down f.

Councilwoman Barbara Denny, who is challenging Tanaka for the mayor's job, received $450 from 16 donors. She raised nearly $11,500 in the prior round of campaign statements, which were due Oct. 5.

Here are the sums and donors the remaining council candidates reported for the period:

  • Keith, $300 from four people,
  • Richard Bailey, $250 from five donors, and 
  • Kari McPherson, $200 from one person.

Most of the money was spent on campaign literature, postage and advertising.
