A slew of Jan. 15 financial filings are soon going to be popping up on the state Board of Elections website. One of the first to become available was filed by Cecilia Tkaczyk, a Democrat whose battle with Republican Assemblyman George Amedore for the newly-created 46th Senate District has yet to be decided.

At the moment, Amedore is leading Tkaczyk by 37 votes. The matter is in the hands of the Court of Appeals, and a ruling is expected any day. A panel of appellate judges ruled unanimously last week that 99 additional ballots should be opened, although officials are holding off on that pending a decision by the state’s high court on Amedore’s appeal.

In the meantime, Tkaczyk has been continuing to raise campaign cash at a modest clip. And that makes sense, considering she’s still owed $20,000 that sunk into her campaign. (According to this filing, she has been paid back $15,000).

Tkaczyk started out the period with $21,388 on hand. She raised $16,889, spent $24,836 and has $13,441 on hand. (This filing covers the period immediately following the November election through Jan. 11).

Her largest contribution – $10,300 – came from LAWPAC of New York, which is the political action committee of the New York Trial Lawyers Association. EMILY’s List kicked in $3,300. An indivudal contribution of note came from NYC Councilwoman Gale Brewer, a West Side Democrat, who sent Tkaczyk $100.

Tkaczyk’s expenditures do not include any legal expenses during her prolonged battle over the 46th SD Election Day results. I assume those expenses are being covered by the Senate Democrats.
