Democratic Old Bridge mayoral Candidate Mark Razzoli out-raising incumbent Republican Mayor Owen Henry, according to 11-day pre-primary reports filed with the Election Law Enforcement Commission.
Razolli has raised $53,092.82 over the cycle and reported having $9,056.72 in his war chest.
Henry raised $36,453 over the same period but finished $9,944.21 on hand, slightly more than the Democratic challenger.
Another Democratic mayoral candidate, David Merwin, has not yet filed his 11-day report.
These numbers reflect where the primary campaign spending was last week and do not include expenditures or fundraising after Memorial Day weekend.
Two slates of candidates are vying for the Democratic nomination.
Former Councilman Dennis Maher, former Councilwoman Junge Dungee and Raya Arbiol are mounting a county-backed bid to take on the republican incumbents, councilmembers Anita Greenberg-Belli, Elanor Walker and Mary Rita Sohor.
Kim Castagne, Justin Meyer and Sam Ferraro are making an off-the-line bid for the Democratic nod under the slogan “Old Bridge Democrats for Good Government.”
All of the council candidate filed forms saying they did not intend to spend more than $5,000 on the election.
