D.C. City Council member Arrington Dixon, who won last month's Democratic nomination for City Council chairman, has raised $118,548 for his campaign, but is still $14,645 in debt, according to reports filed yesterday with the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics.

Nevertheless, Dixon's total receipts were by far the largest of any city candidate who filed yesterday with the exception of the Democratic nominee for mayor, Marion Barry. Barry's campaign has raised $296,059 but is $9,500 in debt. Arthur A. Fletcher, the Republican nominee, raised $28,446 and has no debts.

Barry's two major opponents in the Sept. 12 Democratic primary, Mayor Walter E. Washington and City Council Chairman Sterling Tucker, failed to file Oct. 10 reports by the 5 p.m. deadline yesterday.

Council member Nadine P. Winter, the Democratic nominee for the Ward 6 seat, reported raising $25,374 with $1,300 in debts. Hilda Mason, the Statehood nominee for Council at-large, had raised $11,631 but maintained $14,000 in debt, including $12,000 from her 1977 campaign.

Council member Polly Shackleton, the Democratic nominee in Ward 3, has raised $6,720 and reported a surplus of $3,057.

U.S. Labor Party nominee for mayor Susan Pennington reported no campaign receipts or expenditures. Independent Glova E. Scott said she had received $45 for her campaign for mayor. Independent Warren Hemphill, running for an at-large seat on the council, reported receipts of $3,836.
