Local Democrats Win The Fund-Raising Contest


Democrats have raised nearly twice as much money as their Republican

counterparts this election season.

The two parties recently filed their campaign finance reports with the town

clerk's office. The statements list how much the candidates have received in

contributions and how much they have spent.

Since July, the Committee to Elect Rosenthal/Bojnowski has raised more than

$17,000 in funds, more than $7,000 of it from individual contributions and

nearly $8,000 from the Democratic Town Committee. During that time, the

Committee to Elect Melita/Brimmer brought in just under $9,000, just over

$3,000 from individual contributors and $5,500 from the Republican Town
