Incumbent District Leader Ralph Perfetto must be a bit scared about insurgent Kevin Peter Carroll — the 18-year veteran has finally started to fundraise.

Perfetto had said that he would self-finance his campaign, but on May 27, he held a $100-a-plate dinner that raised $13,635 — about as much as Carroll has raised so far for his candidacy.
