A trickle of town and county candidates filed financial disclosure reports Wednesday and Thursday.
The reports come in a couple of days after the Tuesday deadline, though there is no penalty associated with filing late.
Incumbent Jackson Mayor Mark Barron, who is running unopposed, raised a total of $1,200. Barron contributed $850 to his own campaign. The remaining $350 came from two local donors. Former Councilor Scott Anderson gave $250 and Greg and Margaret Prugh Sr. gave $100.
Incumbent Councilor Abe Tabatabai raised a total of $1,925, including from three local sources. Developer Dave Taylor gave Tabatabai $1,000, Ann Seibert gave $500 and architect Arne Jorgensen gave $75. Tabatabai did not contribute to his own campaign.
Kyle Burson raised $166, all of which came from personal contributions.
Candidates John Bickner Jr. and Tim Sullivan had not filed by Thursday morning.
The other candidates had filed by the deadline.
Incumbent Mark Obringer led all candidates, raising a total of $5,240 from 10 different people, including strong support from the development community in Jackson. Matt Lee raised $3,260 in all, including $2,139 from 18 individual donors and $1,105 from himself or members of his immediate family. Tommy Wood raised $2,942 from 25 individuals, including $1,050 from immediate family members and $1,335 from valley residents.
Louise Lasley raised $605 from five individual donors.
Greg Miles raised $1,500. Like Burson, Miles was the only contributor to his campaign.
