Filings by the committees supporting Walling and challengers Karen Weaver, Wantwaz Davis and Eric Mays show Walling has spent nearly $63,000 in an effort to hold the mayor's office, more than fives times as much as Weaver, who spent the next-highest amount.
Galloway filed paperwork with the city Clerk's Office Friday, July 24, and announced her long-shot campaign on the front lawn of City Hall.

Fellow council members Wantaz Davis and Eric Mays, businesswoman Karen Weaver and incumbent Mayor Dayne Walling are on the primary ballot.
