The three Verona Town Council candidates who previously indicated that they intend to spend more than $5,100 on their campaigns have filed new reports with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC).

Michael Nochimson’s R-1 report details an additional $2,679 in funds raised, including $300 from Leonard Luciano, who represents the district that includes Verona on the Essex County Board of Chosen Freeholders, and $500 from Jay Webber, the state Assemblyman who ran unsuccessfully for Congress against Mikie Sherrill. The report indicates that Nochimson has raised $18,766.34 for the Town Council race, and has spent $13,896.894. That includes $4,391.94 in new spending since the previous report.

Christine McGrath’s R-1 report shows that she raised $3,365 more, bringing her total to $13,703. That includes $2,000 that McGrath has lent her campaign. She spent an additional $4,838.89, bringing her total spending to $8,617.40.

John Fio Rito’s R-1 does not show any new fundraising. Fio Rito’s campaign has raised a total of $10,275, largely through a $10,000 loan from Fio Rito to his campaign. Fio Rito’s total spending, $8,485.38, was unchanged.

John Quattrocchi and Alex Roman have both previously filed A-1 reports. That means that they do not intend to spend more than $5,100 on their campaigns, and that has not changed.

Candidates must file their final campaign report after the election on June 3.
