The field of special election candidates for the vacant D.C. Council seat is narrowing.

It is a crowded field in an off-year election. That means name identification, volunteer support and money will all be important in helping the candidates cross the finish line.

Here are the campaign financial contributions so far for this spring's D.C. Council special election:

  • Democrat Matthew Frumin, a Ward 3 neighborhood commissioner, continues to flex his fundraising prowess, reporting nearly $100,000.
  • Pat Mara, the only Republican in the race, has $53,000.
  • Former reporter and budget analyst Elissa Silverman, a Democrat, reports $47,000.
  • Former Independent council member Michael Brown, who lost his re-election bid in November and is now running as Democrat, is reporting $28,000.
  • Democrat Paul Zukerberg is reporting $15,000 dollars.
  • Statehood Green candidate Perry Redd is reporting $1,200.
  • The report for Anita Bonds, a Democrat who was appointed to fill the interim seat, was not available on the city's campaign finance website.


The special election to fill the at-large D.C. Council seat vacated by Phil Mendelson will take place April 23.
