They don’t generate the big-time bucks that your average race for city council does, but school board candidates have to report their financial dealings as well.

Something to note: Candidates who anticipate they will both raise and spend less than $1,000 in a calendar year are allowed to file a shorter form, known as “Form 470,” in which they do not have to detail expenses and contributions.

The numbers are for this year through Sept. 30.

Lafayette School District

  • Art Kapoor (i): $1,000 in contributions all from himself, $1,000 cash on hand and $703 in outstanding debts
  • Teresa Gerringer (i): Said she filed Form 470
  • David Gerson: $1,000 in contributions (plus a $1,000 personal loan), $2,000 cash on hand and $995.16 in outstanding debts
  • Berch Parker: $475 in contributions, $475 cash on hand and $975 in outstanding debts
  • Saveth Soun: Did not file Form 460 by the Oct. 5 deadline. Soun has not yet responded to an e-mail regarding whether she filed another form.

Orinda Union School District

  • Sarah Butler: Said she filed Form 470.
  • Tyson Krumholz: $550 in contributions, $219.94 in expenditures, $330.06 cash on hand, and $509 in outstanding debts
  • Julie Rossiter: $2,210 in contributions (plus a $1,200 personal loan), $2,593.29 in expenditures, $816.71 cash on hand and $40 in outstanding debts
  • Christopher Severson: Said he filed Form 470.
  • Bekki Van Voorhis-Gilbert: Did not file by the Oct. 5 deadline. She said in an e-mail she was at Point Reyes from Oct. 5 to Oct. 7 for her daughter’s field trip, then broke a bone in her foot and had to have it set Friday, and with county offices closed for Columbus Day planned to file today. Her mid-year filing shows that as of June 30 she had received $4,985 in contributions, made $2,556 in expenditures and had $2,429 cash on hand.
