Breakdown of St. George finance reports for mayor and city council


With just days away from the municipal primary elections set for Aug. 10, candidates for both the city council and mayoral released their finance reports showing the contributions and expenses for each campaign.

It is a crowded race with 11 candidates still in the running competing for four general election slots — there are 12 names on the ballot, but Matthew Heaton dropped out after the ballots were printed. The mayoral race has four candidates competing for two slots. 

In the mayoral race, $39,532.84 was contributed to the four candidates in total but nearly 96% was given to two candidates — Jimmie Hughes and Michele Randall.

More money was raised than spent in this primary campaign with $24,263.62 spent on expenses. Randall both raised, spent and kept the most money out of any candidate, with nearly $15,000 left in her balance.

For the city council race, the 11 candidates collectively raised $56,662.42 and spent $37,542.62, about 62%, on expenses. Current city council member Bryan Smethurst led the way with $15,950 in donations.
