Incumbent Mayor Dennis Kintigh raised thousands of dollars more than his challengers during the month of January, while Ward 3 hopeful Tarra Morgan has garnered the most contributions among City Council candidates.

Office-seekers must detail their finances in an itemized report listing all income, cash or other contributions exceeding $100, as well as expenditures, to City Clerk Sharon Coll on the first day of February and March.

February finance reports include financial transactions through Jan. 25. The same itemized report is required on March 1 and after the election on April 1.

According to city ordinances, candidates were required to report after they filed for candidacy on Jan. 9. That report was to include everything they had received 45 days prior to the filing date. If the candidate does not file campaign finance reports, he or she could be subjected to a $50 fine for each day past the due date.

Mayoral candidates raise more than $10K since filing
