EDMOND — City Councilman Nick Massey has raised $9,257 for his campaign to be elected to the Ward 4 seat for four years, according to contribution and expenditure reports.
Massey, who was appointed a year ago, is running against challenger Shilpa Abbitt in the April 2 general election.
Incumbent Mayor Charles Lamb is running against challenger Richard Prawdzienski.
Massey raised more money than any of the four candidates during the current reporting period. A dozen people made contributions of $250 or more to Massey's campaign.
Certified public accountant Jack Henley, Connie Dixon, chairman of the board of directors at Oklahoma City Abstract and Title, and John Houck, a surgeon and Massey's close friend and bicycle-riding companion, each contributed $1,000.
Patrice Douglas, former Edmond mayor and state Corporation Commission chairwoman, donated $500.
Developers Clay Farha and J.W. Armstrong each contributed $500. Randal Shadid, former mayor and Edmond attorney, also donated $500.
Massey had $2,063 in contributions of $200 or less through March 18. His campaign signs were donated by Toby Muller, owner of Midwest Decals, at a cost of $444.
Massey said in his report he has spent $1,075 during his campaign.
Abbitt reported contributions of $2,050, including $1,400 she put into her campaign, according to contribution and expenditure reports filed Friday.
She listed $650 in contributions of $200 or less. Abbitt reported expenses of $1,012.
In the mayor's race, Lamb was the only candidate to turn in a contribution and expenditure report.

Prawdzienski said he has not spent or raised $200.
Lamb has raised $2,725. Three people — Farha, Shadid and R. Clay Coldiron, with Turner and Company, — each donated $500. City planning commission chairman, Barry Moore, contributed $250.
