Landman spent $6,777 in his successful bid to keep the seat that he was appointed to in 2009.
Councilwoman Pat Gilardi, who also was elected, was the second-biggest spender. A council member since 2000, she spent $6,502 on her campaign.

Former councilman George Barich spent $4,408 in an unsuccessful bid to regain the seat from which he was recalled in 2009 after about a year in office.
