According to state campaign disclosure reports, Quincy Mayor John Spring raised $10,100 between July 1 and Sept. 30, fueling speculation that he may seek a third term, although he has continued to be non-committal publicly. He now has $18,000 in his campaign account. A Democrat, Spring spent more than $200,000 combined in winning in 2005 and 2009.
Meanwhile, Third Ward Alderman Kyle Moore, who in August said he would seek the Republican nomination for mayor, raised more than $25,000 in the same time period. Moore has $30,000 in the bank. Petitions for the February 2013 primary will be turned in between Nov. 19 and 26. The general election is April 2.
