OAKLEY -- David Hansen is leading the pack in contributions among Oakley City Council candidates who have submitted campaign finance forms.
Hansen, one of six running for three seats, reported having received $3,380 in contributions, which includes a $525 loan to himself.
Candidates must declare the money they put up themselves as a loan if they want to recover those funds using others' contributions.
The statement Hansen filed is the first of three that candidates will submit before the Nov. 6 election.
Among his supporters is the Danville company SB Norcal Properties, which contributed $500.
Oakley's Delta Scrap & Salvage gave him $400, and the real estate company Hansen co-owns contributed $1,250.
Diane Burgis collected $850, including $500 from outgoing Councilman Jim Frazier and his wife.
Frazier is not up for reelection because he's running for a state Assembly seat.
Burgis, as did Hansen, also received $250 from a Walnut Creek property management company.
Ron Borland ranked third in contributions, having taken in $760. The largest donation -- $250 -- came from Scheer Security Alarm Systems in Oakley.
One of the candidates is financing his bid for office entirely out of pocket.
Doug Hardcastle did not report any contributions, but indicated that he has spent $1,366.65 so far.
Mayor Kevin Romick is running the lowest-budget campaign of all: He filed the one-page form required of candidates who don't expect to receive or spend more than $999 in 2012. Romick said this week that he's reusing the signs he had made for his two earlier campaigns.
Absent from the mix was Randi Adler, who hadn't submitted any financial disclosure forms as of Oct. 4.
