Kate Anderson has raised more than three times as much as the incumbent in the race for a seat on the Los Angeles Unified School District board, according to the Los Angeles Ethics Commission's reporting through Feb. 16.
Incumbent Steve Zimmer raised just under $70,000 compared to the $202,515 that Anderson raised in the same time period.
In February, New York Mayor Bloomberg donated $1 million to the Coalition for School Reform, a committee that is supporting Anderson, along with LAUSD board president Monica Garcia and newcomer Antonio Sanchez.
Anderson is a lawyer who is also on the Mar Vista Community Council, and she interned for Congressman Henry Waxman before attending law school at the University of Chicago.
Zimmer has been a teacher for 17 years and recently wrote a letter to New York Mayor Bloomberg over the $1 million contribution.
