February 04, 2003|From Times Staff Reports

The various campaigns to defeat secession reported Monday that they spent more than $7.5 million to kill the breakup proposals on last November's ballot.

Mayor James K. Hahn's L.A. United reported that it raised $6.22 million last year.

Campaign committees formed by City Council members and the city attorney took in $1.37 million. Richard Katz, chairman of the Valley Independence Committee, said his pro-secession campaign raised less than $900,000.

Katz criticized the opposition for accepting major contributions from developers and city contractors.
