EDITOR’S NOTE: This story originally reported that donations to Noemi Torres campaign during he period from Jan. 1 to June 30, 2020, totaled $10,189. That comes from a download of contribution data from the city’s website. However, a paper filing states a total of $12,988 in donations. WEHOville has updated this story to include that amount. It is unclear why the digital data is different but there have been similar issues with the system the city uses in the past.
