Tim Henney, needing to leapfrog, spends the most of the City Council field
Tim Henney, the fourth-place finisher in the Park City Council primary in August, raised more money and spent more than any of his competitors through late October, required financial statements filed at City Hall this week indicated.
The numbers reported by Henney, one of the challengers, outpaced by a significant margin the others on the City Council ballot. The four City Councilors who advanced out of a primary to Election Day were tightly grouped, but Henney was the lowest vote-getter of the group.
Henney listed $4,625 in contributions and $4,624.95 in expenditures through Oct. 29.
According to the financial statement, either Henney himself or family members in Idaho contributed the largest sum. Family members contributed a combined $500 in September. The candidate put $161 into the campaign on Oct. 28. In a financial statement filed in the summer, as the primary approached, Henney reported that he had self-financed much of the campaign.
Others listed on Henney’s most recent statement include Dena Fleming, at $250, Lisa Lundquist, who gave $250, Peter Gatch, who gave $250, and $250 donations from Kevin Shannon and Chip Williams. Henney listed legal and professional fees, at $3,356, as his largest expense.
Highlights from the other financial statements filed by the City Council candidates in late October included:
The City Council campaign was a mild-mannered affair. It appeared early on that the candidates would not spend big money. This year’s numbers fell from those of 2011, the most recent City Council campaign.
