BEVERLY — Stacy Ames and Kathleen Feldman have raised the most money among the candidates competing in Tuesday's election in Beverly.

Ames, who is running for Ward 3 city councilor, raised $14,773, according to campaign finance reports. Her opponent, Kris Silverstein, raised $6,538.

Ward 5 council candidate Feldman raised $14,142. Ward 5 incumbent Don Martin raised $4,825.

The two ward council races are among the four races on the ballot in Beverly. The others are for at-large city councilor and School Committee in Ward 4. The three incumbent at-large councilors are the only three candidates, but the top vote-getter will automatically become council president.

In the at-large race, Paul Guanci raised $8,060, Julie Flowers raised $5,040, and Tim Flaherty raised $3,160.

In the Ward 4 School Committee race, incumbent John Mullady raised $625 while challenger Jeffrey Silva raised $321. Silva, however, has outspent Mullady, $1,346 to $755.
