Lake Forest Park mayoral candidate Mary Jane Goss now leads opponent Dwight Thompson in fundraising for the August 16 primary and November 8 general election.

State Public Disclosure Commission reports through Friday, July 15 showed that former City Councilwoman Goss had raised $7,391 to $6,938 for Thompson, a current councilman and deputy mayor.

Goss reports six cash contributions of between $125 and $800 for a total of $2,650, plus $25 in small contributions, a $1,500 personal donation and $3,216 in loans.

Thompson reports receiving 20 cash contributions of between $37.50 and $300 for a total of $1,874, plus small contributions of $50, a personal contribution of $314, and loans totaling $4,700. He also reports spending $1,500 on campaign consulting.

The third candidate on the primary ballot, Stan Lippmann, has not registered with the PDC, something required of all candidates in jurisdictions with more than 500 registered voters.

Commission officials sent notices to candidates in all of Washington’s 39 counties in mid-June and follow-up notices two weeks ago.
