POST FALLS - Ron Jacobson has pulled ahead of Kerri Thoreson in contributions in the city council members' run for mayor in Tuesday's election.

Jacobson leads all Post Falls city candidates with $10,148 in contributions through Oct. 20. Thoreson reported $4,124 in contributions.

Tuesday was the second deadline for candidates to post their financial reports.

Three weeks ago, Thoreson had a slight lead - $2,759 to $2,075 - in contributions.

Jacobson, a senior vice president for Inland Northwest Bank, has spent $5,452 on his campaign.

Recent contributions have come from the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, $1,000, Kootenai County Fire and Rescue Local 2856 Political Action Committee, $500, Jack Riggs, $500, Knudtsen Chevrolet, $400, Robideaux Motors, $350, Empire Airlines, $250, Eric Keck, $200, Duane and Susan Jacklin, $200, Don Jacklin, $200, and Doyle Jacklin, $200.

"I appreciate the support of both businesses and individuals, but the most important support will be votes," Jacobson said. "I'm going to a lot of homes and talking to a lot of people."

Thoreson, a semi-retired independent writer and photographer, has also spent more than half of her contributions ($2,216).

"I may be outspent on this campaign, but I won't be outworked," she said. "I'm focusing on getting out in the neighborhoods and talking with people, investing in good old-fashioned shoe leather."

Her recent contributions have included David and Lynn Shaw, $400, and Pioneer Health Resources, $350.

Clay Larkin decided to not seek re-election as mayor.

In the race for city council seat No. 2, which is currently held by Jacobson, Alan Wolfe, a regional director for Spokane Teachers Credit Union, has a slight financial lead on two other candidates.

Wolfe has $2,829 in contributions and has spent $2,367. His recent donors included D.G. and Jody Hissong, $200, and Ron Nilson, $100.

Barry Rubin, a former Navy officer and auditor, reported $2,185 in contributions and $1,388 in expenditures. Recent contributions have come from David Shaw, $300, Brent Regan, $200, and Fred Ebel, $200.

Jim Hail, accounts receivable manager for Hagadone Directories, reported $2,000 in contributions and $1,213 in expenditures. Contributors have included James Hail II, $500, and John Magnuson, $100.

Joe Bodman, a Spokane County deputy, did not submit a report by the 5 p.m. deadline on Tuesday, city officials said.

In the race for city council seat No. 4, incumbent Betty Ann Henderson has a slight lead in contributions on challengers Jayson Cornwell and Christi Fleischman.

Henderson, a retired Realtor, reported $2,250 in contributions and $707 in expenditures. Recent contributions came from the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, $500, and Gary and Gladys Schneidmiller, $125 each.

Cornwell, a corrections officer with Spokane County Detention Services, has $1,695 in contributions and $1,352 in expenditures. Jill Cornwell was his highest recent donor at $150.

Fleischman, co-owner of Knock Marketing and Design, reported $1,428 in contributions and $1,375 in expenditures.
