Money in Politics: Plymouth Council



We asked a few of the local candidates if they could send us their most recent campaign finance report. Some sent the reports of their competition, another said they did not have it and one told us we needed to get it from the county. Of the ones we reached out to only one local candidate, Eli Glick (I) Whitemarsh Supervisor, offered his report without hesitation. We set out to get these reports, and the county does not make it easy.


These reports will eventually get uploaded to the county website but this seems to only happen well after the election is over. The only way to get these reports is in person at the office of Voter Services.

Today we are looking at the reports for Plymouth Council. Two seats are up for grabs, Ward 2 where (D) Chris Manero tries to retain his seat after his first term and Ward 4 where we will see who will replace (R) Lenore Bruno.


Chris Mundiath: Ward 2 candidate (R) Chris Mundiath jumped into this race to replace Joe Subbio who had to exit due to personal reasons. Mundiath raised a total of $7,270 of which $570 came from individual contributions under $50 (not required to be listed individually); $300 came from individual contributions between $50.01 and $250; $400 came from individual contributions over $250. A total of $6,000 came from PACS. Individual contributions came from donors located in East Norriton, Audobon, and Plymouth. You can view the entire report here.


Sarah Derr Sterious: Ward 4 candidate (R) Sarah Derr Sterious raised a total of $7,150 of which $725 came from individual contributions under $50 (not required to be listed individually); $1435 came from individual contributions between $50.01 and $250; $1,990 came from individual contributions over $250. A total of $3,000 came from PACS. Individual contributions came from donors located in Lafayette Hill, Blue Bell, Conshohocken, Plymouth Meeting, and Harbeson, DE. You can view the entire report here.


Plymouth Victory Committee: (Chris Manero/Kathy Bandish) On the Democratic side of both the ward 2 and ward 4 races Chris Manero and Kathy Bandish raise money under the name Plymouth Victory Committee. Plymouth Victory Committee started this period with $16,277 and raised a total of $8,590 of which $240 came from individual contributions under $50 (not required to be listed individually); $1650 came from individual contributions between $50.01 and $250; $3,500 came from individual contributions over $250. A total of $3,200 came from PACS. Individual contributions came from donors located in Levittown, Perkasie, Lansdale, Jenkintown, Hatfield, Fort Washington, Pittsburgh, North Wales, Warrington, Lower Gwynedd, Blue Bell, and Plymouth Meeting. You can view the entire report here.
