Stow -- The Stow-Munroe Falls School District Levy Committee raised $4,639 for its Issue 10 campaign, according to the Summit County Board of Elections office.
Issue 10, a 4.17-mill levy on the May 8 ballot, failed by a vote of 3,525 to 2,371. It would have generated approximately $3.9 million for the next five years if it had passed.
According to the Summit County Board of Elections, there was no political action committee that filed to oppose Issue 10.
The levy committee had $2,340 remaining from its campaign fund to pass a levy last November. That money was transferred to the fund for the May 8 ballot issue, according to the Summit County Board of Elections. The total available balance for the Issue 10 campaign fund was $6,978.
The committee collected contributions between April 24 and May 18, according to the Summit County Board of Elections.
Among the committee's largest contributors was Fifth Third Bank, which donated $1,000.
The group also received several $100 donations from individuals.
The committee's expenditures totaled $2,492, $1,762 of which was spent on newspaper advertising.
The committee also spent $351 for printing costs.
