James Gray, candidate for New Orleans City Council District E in the Dec. 8 runoff election, raised $49,365 in campaign contributions from mid-October to mid-November, compared to $39,700 in contributions to his opponent State Rep. Austin Badon. Badon, however, ended the period with more cash on hand, nearly $11,000 to just under $4,000 for Gray, according to campaign finance reports filed yesterday with the Louisiana Ethics Administration.

Gray's campaign spent about $55,000 between Oct. 18 and Nov. 18, the period covered by the 10th day prior to general election report. Badon's campaign spent $44,000 in the same period.

Supplemental reports show that Gray collected $3,500 and Badon collected $7,000 in contributions between Nov. 18 and today.

Notable Gray contributions in the most recent reports: $3,500 from the Committee to Elect Cheryl Gray (Gray's daughter and former state senator who resigned in 2009); $2,500 from former Congressman Claude "Buddy" Leach; $1,500 from the Service Employees International Union national office; and $1,000 from HRI Properties.

Notable Badon contributions in the most recent reports: $2,500 from Richard's Disposal; $2,000 from developer/philanthropist Roger Ogden; $1,000 from former Board of Secondary and Elementary Education member and charter school advocate Leslie Jacobs; and $250 from former Congressman Anh "Joseph" Cao.
