Park City •Jack Thomas raised and spent a stunning amount of money during this ski town's mayoral campaign, setting records on both sides of the ledger for a Park City contest.

In a required financial statement submitted to City Hall last week, Thomas reported he raised $53,801 between monetary donations and donated services. He reported spending $36,189.05.
