HOBOKEN -- In what will not come as a surprise to anyone who has received her mailers in their mailbox, Councilwoman Beth Mason has so far spent the most money of all seven Hoboken mayoral candidates who want to win the election on Nov. 3.
According to Eric Kurta, a resident who is active in campaign contribution reform, Mason has received $394,050 as of Oct. 23 to use in this race.
This is nearly double the contributions raised by her opponent, Frank Raia, who had $200,000 as of Oct. 23. As for contributions of less than $300 each, Mason got $1,850, while Raia has none of those.
Incumbent Dawn Zimmer is third with $97,151 raised, $17,488 of it from contributions of less than $300 each.
Glatt has $40,880, and $1,680 of that is from individual small contributions.
Surprisingly, Republican Nathan Brinkman has almost as much as Glatt -- $36,731, of which $2,840 is from contributions of less than $300.
Everton Wilson has $1,555 in total, and Patricia Wilson did not file, according to Kurta's numbers.

But how many of these contributions are from the candidate contributing to him/herself, and how many are in-kind donations of food, etc.?
