Thursday marked the 30-day deadline before Dallas' May 9 municipal election. That means a couple of things: First, it's too late to register to vote in the election if you haven't already, and second, candidates had to file their latest campaign finance report. A couple of weeks ago, we told you about the races that represent a potential path to an eight-vote majority of candidates against the Trinity toll road on the City Council. Let's take a look at where the money's headed in those races.
Casey Thomas has raised only $3,650 so far in 2015 despite being endorsed by term-limited District 3 incumbent Vonciel Jones Hill. B.D. Howard, Gerald Britt, Joe Tave and Wini Cannon all raised more money than Thomas, the only pro-toll road candidate in District 3. Tave, who's been endorsed by Scott Griggs, Adam Medrano and Philip Kingston raised $5,701 in the first quarter of 2015. Cannon, who's been endorsed by the Dallas Green Alliance, raised $3,963. Britt, the vice president of external affairs at CitySquare, led the field by raising $9,335.
