Coroner Hopefuls Fund Own Campaigns

The 4 Kootenai County coroner candidates are almost entirely funding their primary campaigns by personal loans. Demo Jody DeLuca Hissong has the most money on hand, after loaning herself $3000. Hissong is running unopposed for the Dem nomination. Douglas Stafford, Debbie Wilkey and Tom Cronin are seeking the Republican nomination:

  • Jody DeLuca Hissong has raised #615 and spent $231, for a balance of $3383. She has loaned her campaign $3000. She has received 2 contributions of $100 or more, including one from Todd Tondee for $150. Jody DeLuca Hissong report here.
  • Douglas Stafford has loaned himself and spent $2059. Douglas Stafford report here.
  • Debbie Wilkey’s report is hard to read. She seems to say that she has raised $1223 and spent $2971, and has a balance of $848 and outstanding debt of $209. There’s some in-kind money in the mix. I’ll let you figure it out yourself with her report here.
  • Tom Cronin has loaned his campaign and spent $948. Tom Cronin report here.

Repubs Schedule Coroner Debate

The three Republican candidates for Kootenai County coroner — Tom Cronin, Douglas R. Stafford, and Debbie Wilkey — will participate in a debate Thursday, sponsored by the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans. The event is scheduled for noon at the Song Bird Theater, 315 Fourth St., Coeur d’Alene. The current Coroner, Dr. Robert West is retiring and the May 25 Republican Primary will decide who will face Democrat Jody DeLuca Hissong in November.

Question: How will you decide which coroner candidate gets your vote?
