Zapf currently represents District 6, but redistricting in 2011 left her home in District 2, where she is running for election. Her major opponent is Sarah Boot, a former federal prosecutor.

Zapf said in a statement that her most recent fundraising disclosure to the city clerk’s office will show $159,135 raised over the two-month period of March 18 to May 17. She said she has more than $175,000 cash on hand going into the last two weeks before the June 3 election.

The campaign has received support from 1,344 contributors. City law limits campaign contributions to $550 per person for City Council elections.

Zapf is endorsed by Mayor Kevin Faulconer and former Mayor Jerry Sanders, among others.

District 2 includes Pt. Loma, Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, Bay Ho, Morena, Bay Park and Midway.
