Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio Even before Salt Lake City elects a new mayor, one losing candidate is asking friends and supporters to show another round of generosity.
Jenny Wilson is sending out letters asking for cash to soak up the pool of red ink left over from her primary campaign. "I sent a letter recently letting my supporters know that I have a little bit of debt remaining," Wilson said. "We're looking at about $30,000."
She says she is not the only candidate trying to climb out of debt. "In fact, I received a solicitation recently from one of my colleagues at the county who has a debt as well," Wilson explained.
The Hinckley Institute says Wilson is within the letter of the law, but donors who contribute must make certain they don't surpass the $7,500 limit for the mayor's race.
