Managers of local political action committees (PACs) filed with the City Clerk’s office on Sept. 27.

Based on forms filed, Businesses for a Better San Clemente, which has the San Clemente Chamber of Commerce’s address as its location, has raised almost $7,000 and spent $4,559, giving $3,000 to Swartz for City Council, Steve Swartz’s campaign.

Watchdog for San Clemente Responsible Government opposes both Dan Bane and Steve Swartz and has raised $10,000 in loans from Jeri Mann.

The next filing for PACs and fundraising committees, as well as candidate campaign financing, is due Oct. 27.
