Pettis' biggest single donation was $5,000 from the Oklahoma City Firefighters Association political action committee on April 11, a little more than a week after the election.

Pettis' report showed he raised about $8,000 in the two weeks before the election and spent about $25,000 on advertising, mailings and other campaign activities.

Overall, Pettis reported raising $51,800 and spending $36,900 on his campaign. After accounting for in-kind contributions, he had $11,649 left as of May 2, the date on the report.

Kelly reported raising $52,000 and spending $49,700, ending the campaign with $2,300. Kelly also missed Monday's deadline but the report was posted Wednesday afternoon.

Ward 1 city Councilman James Greiner, like Pettis elected on April 2 to his first term, said most of his $4,630 in expenses for the last two weeks of the campaign went for printing, mailing and signs. A computer problem is keeping his reports from showing itemized expenses, he said. Greiner filed his report on time.
