A $250,000 Election?
This year's city council race is shaping up as the most expensive in history.
In November, Jane Lumm and Kirk Westphal spent over $40,000 between them in Ward Two. Their total nearly doubled last year's second-most-expensive contest, the $21,000 Democratic primary between Jack Eaton and Marcia Higgins in Ward Four. And it easily topped the previous record holder: the $34,000 race in 2011, when Lumm beat Stephen Rapundalo.
