Just a quick update on the latest (through October 24) total dollar amount of campaign contributions that aldermen candidates are reporting. There is obviously a lot at stake this election. The establishment candidates candidates, specifically those endorsed retiring aldermen Janda and Owens-- McCreery, Hicks, and Ueleke, are still raking in the cash. Their challengers-- Johnson, Musso, Miles, and Motley, cannot keep pace. I reported third quarter accumulated contributions in this Donations Over the Top in Aldermen Races. Here are the updated figures of contributions reported to the Shelby County Election Commission through October 24:
I have collected the new reports from the candidates' filings and placed them in this folder for your convenience.

Of particular note are two large donations to Ueleke's campaign from PACs-- the FEDEX PAC, and the Tennessee Association of Realtors PAC. McCreery scored a large donation from Ray Gill, developer of Travure, the multi-story office building and hotels on Poplar just east of Kirby. Hicks also reported a large donation from the Tennessee Association of Realtors PAC and from the campaign funds of Forrest Owens.
