Show me the money

Candidates for the Buffalo School Board had to file their first financial disclosure statements by April 8.

They'll have to file the next disclosure by May 2 -- five days before the election. Historically, the big money flows in late in the game. But you can get some sense of how things are unfolding by looking at the money that has already been spent.

The candidates filed paper disclosure reports in City Hall, and the News then input the information from those reports into the list you see below. The spellings of the names of donors and other information included here is provided to you just as it was filed in City Hall by the candidates.

Any candidate who spent less than $500 so far was not required to provide a breakdown of their donations. This time around, that included Wendy Mistretta in the North District; Bryon McIntyre and Joseph Mascia in the Central District; and Adrian Harris in the Park District.

Here are the donations that the other candidates have reported so far:
