The two men running for Quincy mayor have turned in their latest quarterly campaign reports.

Quincy Mayor John Spring collected only $1,525 during the fourth quarter of 2012, but he reported a first quarter donation of $5,000 from Foresight Energy Services of St. Louis on January 11 and the quarterly report was filed on January 12. That, coupled with the $19,111 he reported on hand, puts his total at $24,111.

While that total may seem low as Spring spent nearly $200,000 on his two previous mayoral runs, he should have no problemsraising campaign funds during the first quarter leading up to the April 9 general election.

Spring’s challenger, Third Ward Republican Alderman Kyle Moore, raised $9,979 in the fourth quarter and also received $1,250 in in-kind contributions.

Moore’s cash on hand was at $36,420 as of Tuesday’s filing, but then a $5,000 contribution from State Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) was posted Tuesday afternoon, to bring Moore's reported cash to $41,420
