UPDATE: Farmington area city candidates file financial reports

UPDATE: Oakland County received reports from Farmington candidate Jacob Nelson and Farmington Hills candidates Randy Bruce and Valerie Knol on October 25. The additional information has been added to this report.

Candidates for city council and mayor in Farmington and Farmington Hills filed their pre-election campaign finance reports this week.

The state requires those who spend or raise more than $1,000 to identify individual and Political Action Committee (PAC) contributions, in-kind contributions, where they spend the funds, and whether their campaign incurred any debt.

Top fundraiser across both cities was Jon Aldred, a first-time Farmington Hills candidate, who received more than $11,000. Farmington council member David Delind raised more than $6,400.

At the other end of the scale, Farmington Hills mayoral candidate Vicki Barnett raised just $50; she also spent far less than any other candidate.

In Farmington, Jacob Nelson, Geof Perrot, and Steven Schneemann filed for reporting waivers. Jacob Kovacs and mayoral candidate Gina Phillips filed in Farmington Hills. Nelson ended up raising over the limit; Oakland County received his statement on October 25.

Here’s a look at how much the other candidates raised and spent:
