OlympianOctober 31, 2013 

Sue Gunn and Jeff Davis, the two candidates vying for the District 3 seat on the Port of Olympia commission, combined have raised more than $50,000 for their respective campaigns, according to state Public Disclosure Commission data.

Incumbent Davis leads the way with nearly $37,000, followed by Gunn with nearly $21,000, the data show.

Here are the top contributors to the Davis campaign:

-ILWU, Local 19: $2,500

-ILWU, Local 21: $2,500

-Washington Machinists Council: $2,500

-Inland Boatmens Union: $1,000

-ILWU, Local 92: $900

Here are the top contributors to the Gunn campaign:

-Citizens for Integrity in Government: $500

-Cecile Disenhouse: $500

-Sue Gunn: $500

-David Jette; $500

-Walt Jorgensen: $500

Although the port commission candidate fundraising has been significant, it is not tops among local candidates. That distinction belongs to Thurston County auditor candidates Gary Alexander and Mary Hall who combined have raised more than $100,000.

Hall leads with about $66,300 to Alexander's $55,400, PDC data show.

Olympia City Council candidates Cheryl Selby and Darren Mills have raised nearly $50,000 in their race, with Selby leading Mills $27,400 to his $18,800.
