If the amount of money in this year’s Park City mayor’s race is any indication, it’s serious. With just a few more days to the primary election, Leslie Thatcher reports on the first of the required campaign finance returns.

Two of the three candidates for Park City mayor have raised more than 20-thousand dollars so far. The third – though isn’t far behind.

The first financial disclosures were due Tuesday  - more than two weeks after voters received their mail-in ballots.

The three men running for Park City mayor debated several issues in a two-hour forum hosted by Leslie Thatcher and Renai Bodley at the KPCW studios on Friday, August 4th.
