Unlike previous reporting periods since winning his first term as mayor in 2016, Ly has not received money from labor unions, including organizations in the building trades. Additionally, no contributions were received from real estate developers with interests in Elk Grove or large vendors doing business with the city.

The two contributions the mayor received classified as a business were $1,000 from International Market, Fresno; and $2,000 from T-Motorz Auto Repair, Sacramento. As of September 19, Ly reported having $225,304 on hand.

Between July 1 and September 19, the campaign spent $37,667 suggesting large purchases will be made in October as ballots arrive in voters' mailboxes. A staple of Ly recent campaigns has been the distribution of potted flowering plants which the campaign cost the campaign $652.28 during the reporting period.
