Council candidates in Parsippany are raising barely any money, according to 11-day pre-election reports filed with the Law Enforcement Election Commission.
Incumbent Councilmen Paul Carifi, Jr., and Michael dePierro reported raising zero dollars over the period. Over the cycle, they’ve brought in $32,074.14 and $48,701, respectively.
Councilwoman Loretta Gragnani Brought in $50 in the last few weeks and $39,878.73 over the cycle.
Carifi had $16,137.65 in his war chest, while dePierro had $5,912.55. Gragnani reported having $8,130.75.
Their Democratic challengers, Cori A. Herbig, Robert Kaminski and Judith Hernandez, fared a bit better, but not by all that much.
Herbig and Hernandez reported raising $300 each, bringing their respective totals to $1,300 and $800 raised. Kaminski, the town’s top fundraiser, brought in $1,500, giving her a total raised of $2,000.
Herbig had just $373.75 in his war chest. Hernandez had a slightly less-unimpressive $473.75. Kaminsky had $1,673.75 banked.
Unlike the three Republican incumbents, the Democrats are also raising money through a joint committee, which which has brought in $12,125 over the duration of the race and reported having $10,446.06 on hand.
These numbers reflect where the primary campaign spending was last week and do not include expenditures or fundraising after Memorial Day weekend.
James Carifi, the fourth Republican candidate seeking a council seat and the only one who doesn’t already hold one, filed a form saying he does not intend to spend more than $5,000 on the race.
