City Council and mayor candidates have filed their last campaign contribution reports before the Nov. 7 election.

Five major mayoral candidates have reported raising over $1 million. All but one candidate, John Eaves, reports having a six-figure balance on hand as the election draws near.

Candidates for the two Atlanta City Council seats that represent most of Buckhead report raising a wide range of amounts. Howard Shook, the District 7 incumbent, has raised far more than his opponent, Rebecca King. District 8 candidate J.P. Matzigkeit has raised almost twice as much as his opponent, Anna Tillman.

Candidates for the District 6 seat, Jennifer Ide and Kirk Rich, report raising similar amounts.

Buckhead voters will help select a new mayor from a huge field of candidates and elect City Council seats for local Districts 6, 7 and 8 in the Nov. 7 election.
