STAMFORD — The city’s candidates for mayor raised a combined total of about $1.4 million as of the week before Election Day, with Caroline Simmons and Bobby Valentine accounting for the vast majority of the total.

Simmons, a Democrat and now Stamford’s mayor-elect, and Valentine, a former Major League Baseball manager who ran as an unaffiliated candidate, together raised more than $1.2 million as of Oct. 24 — more than all the candidates for mayor had raised as of late October 2013. The price tag for that race ended up being about $1.3 million, which was a record for the city.

In the final stretch of this year’s race, Simmons loaned $150,000 of her own money to her campaign. Her contribution was not unusual: Other mayoral candidates in Stamford have personally loaned money to their campaigns in the past. Now-Mayor David Martin loaned $75,000 to his campaign ahead of the election in 2013. The Republican candidate then, Michael Fedele, loaned his own campaign $50,000.

“Caroline wanted to ensure her campaign had the necessary resources to communicate with voters about what was at stake during this election, and specifically her vision for moving Stamford forward through improvements to local infrastructure, investing in education and partnering with local small businesses,” Simmons’ campaign manager, Lauren Meyer, said in a statement.

With her loan included, Simmons’ campaign raised about $682,000 between February and late October, according to a campaign finance disclosure statement. She pulled in about $519,000 from individual contributors and $11,600 from more than a dozen political committees, including the PACs of a number of labor unions and state legislative leaders.

Valentine raised about $565,000 between the end of April and late October, with nearly all of the money coming from individual contributors, according to a disclosure statement.
