(August 15, 2000) -- Campaign disclosure reports filed by LB City Council candidates and local political committees provide a wealth of enlightening data, showing who contributed how much to whom.

The LB City Clerk's office has indicated that the most recently due reports for embattled interim Councilmember Laura Richardson-Batts (6th district) and Councilman Rob Webb (8th district) were not timely filed by July 31. Interim Councilwoman Richardson-Batts filed on August 7 and Councilman Webb filed on August 14. will upload pertinent portions of their data shortly. Both Richardson-Batts & Webb filed disclosure forms earlier this year for earlier filing periods.

Disclosure reports were timely filed by 6th district candidate Dee Andrews (who brought suit to invalidate Ms. Richardson-Batts' six vote win amid election irregularities; the race will be re-run in November); 4th district candidate (now Councilmember) Dennis Carroll; former incumbent 4th district Councilmember Del Roosevelt and re-elected incumbent Councilmember Dan Baker.
