Finance reports show the campaign to get voters to approve the Columbus City Schools levy on next week's ballot has raised nearly 436 thousand dollars.

Most of the money comes from the area's corporate elites, including American Electric Power, L Brands, Nationwide Insurance, and Huntington National Bank. Teachers unions and other organized labor groups have donated 45 thousand dollars so far. Campaign organizers expect to spend over 600 thousand dollars this year.
