JUNEAU - City Assembly candidate Wade Bryson has raised and spent the most money in this year's municipal election, according to the most recent filing with the Alaska Public Offices Commission.

As of Sept. 30, Bryson raised $11,681, with $5,000 of that coming from his own pocket. He spent $9,279.29, with much of that money going for radio advertising.

Bryson is running for the Assembly's areawide seat against incumbent Bob Doll, who spent $2,112.72 as of Sept. 30. Doll raised a total of $4,105, which includes a $1,000 donation from an operating engineers union.

Karen Taug, who is running for a District 2 seat, raised a total of $6,695 as of Sept. 30. She spent a total of $6,193.98, most of it for print advertising.

Her opponent, Jonathan Anderson, did not have to disclose his finances because he plans to spend less than $5,000 on his campaign.

Merrill Sanford, who is running unopposed for a District 1 seat, and the three candidates for School Board, also have not been required to disclose their financial information.

So far, the Assembly candidates raised and spent far less in their races than past candidates.

The election is Tuesday.
