The two candidates hoping to replace Ron Peltier on the Bainbridge Island City Council have already raised a combined total of more than $20,000, according to Washington state election officials.

Anthony Oddo and Kirsten Hytopoulos are running for the at-large, District 1 seat on the Bainbridge council. Peltier, a first-term councilman who has been dogged by ethics complaints since late last year, is not seeking another term.

Oddo and Hytopoulos are the only Bainbridge candidates to have reported contributions to their political campaigns to the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission (PDC), the state agency that serves as a watchdog on campaign financing.

Oddo has raised the most money of any Bainbridge candidate, according to records on file with the PDC.

He has raised a total of $16,239 through July 1 — the most of any candidate for a Bainbridge council seat since 2013. The council races in 2013 set a fundraising record for the island, with council candidates Richard Haugan and Val Tollefson raising $29,370 and $26,178 respectively.

According to campaign records, Oddo has spent $3,547 of the money raised so far.

Hytopoulos has raised a total of $4,250 in contributions, and has spent $910, according to reports on file with the PDC.

Six other people are running for positions on the Bainbridge council this November, but none have yet reported contributions to their campaigns.

The other candidates are: Council District 2, North Ward, Kol Medina, Kevin Fetterly and Ashley Mathews; District 4, Central Ward, Leslie A. Schneider and Grayson William Wildsmith; District 6, South Ward, Sarah Blossom and Michael Pollock.
