Felder Raises More Than He Can Spend, Won’t Be Caught With His ‘Pants Down’

Fun fact, from the campaign finance statements that came out earlier this week:
City Councilman Simcha Felder, who is running in an uncompetitive race for re-election, raised $175,206 in this latest filing period. It’s a total that’s well above the $161,000 spending limit the city’s Campaign Finance Board imposed on City Council races. And it also happens to the biggest hall of any Council candidate over the last quarter, according to the campaign.
“I’m very serious about what I do,” Felder deadpanned during an interview yesterday. “I try to do my best at everything I do, including fund-raising.”
He went on to say, “I have to anticipate an opponent that may not participate” in the matching-funds program and adhere to spending limits, he said.
