Follow the money in the Littleton City Council election

With mail-in ballots out across Littleton, here's a look at who's supporting which candidates with their wallets.

The numbers come from the first round of campaign contributions filed with the city, which were submitted at the end of September. Several more such filings are scheduled before Election Day on Nov. 7.

This list is arranged by council race, and contributions are ranked in descending order of amounts. Some people may be on one list twice, representing donations made at different times. The list of donors' affiliations focuses on professions, political offices and city board and commission memberships.
