Jacobson Bests Thoreson Easily

Ron Jacobson is going from filling in for Post Falls Mayor Clay Larkin to replacing him. Jacobson, who as city council president has occasionally served as acting mayor for Larkin, was elected mayor on Tuesday over Kerri Thoreson by a margin that surprised many election observers. In addition to serving on the council, both candidates have a long list of community service. Jacobson had 1,365 votes to Thoreson's 909. At an election party at Red Lion Templin's Hotel, Jacobson said he started to feel better about his chances of being elected after the early results were posted. “I like the indicator,” he said. Jacobson has served on the city council for the past 14 years. He has worked in the banking industry for 35 years, including the past 13 as a senior vice president for Inland Northwest Bank/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Are you surprised by the margin of victory in the Post Falls mayor's race?
