Breakdown of Cedar City campaign finance reports for mayoral race

Cedar City’s municipal candidates filed their last campaign finance reports before the Nov. 2 election date and included multiple candidates putting thousands of dollars of their own money into the election, including one candidate that spent over $150,000. 

Between the two elections, the mayoral race was the most expensive even with fewer candidates. In total there was $236,659.39 raised and $182,242.34 spent between the two candidates, incumbent Mayor Maile Wilson Edwards and challenger Garth Green, a local businessman who self-funded about 99% of his campaign. 

This is the first time the finances for the mayoral race have been disclosed since the candidates didn’t have to compete in an August primary like the city council candidates did.
