Candidate financial disclosures show Gorman tops in money raised and spent

BY LANDON WOODROOF

Candidates in Brentwood’s May 2 municipal election have turned in two financial disclosure forms so far to the Williamson County Election Commission disclosing the amount of money each campaign has raised and spent.

One form covered the period ending March 31 while the other covered through April 22.

These forms show that incumbent Mark Gorman’s campaign has both raised and spent the most money through April 22 this election season, while challenger John Byers’s campaign has raised and spent the least.

Overall, Gorman’s campaign has brought in $15,896 during the period covered by the forms, around 33 percent more than his nearest competitor, Regina Smithson. Smithson’s campaign has raised $11,979 through April 22.

Behind them, Rhea Little’s campaign has netted $10,730 and Byers’s campaign has raised $8,030.

As far as expenditures are concerned, Gorman’s campaign has spent $14,723.77 through April 22. In second place again is Smithson, whose campaign expended $11,001.41 during the same time. Little’s campaign has disbursed $8,931.61 in the same period, while Byers’s has spent $5,559.07.

Smithson raised the most from donations under $100, bringing in $2,029 from such donors. Gorman, although he raised the most overall, raised the least amount from donations under $100, netting $196 in this category.
