Community volunteer Mary Poss has raised nearly twice as much money as lawyer Glenn Box in their race for the Place 5 seat on Dallas City Council, but she has bankrolled nearly half the campaign with her own money, according to campaign finance reports filed Friday.

And in the Place 9 at-large council race, lawyer Harriet Miers has raised more than five times as much as her runoff opponent, insurance executive Jim Garner. The four candidates were required to file the campaign reports eight days before the May 20 runoff election.

The reports, which cover campaign contributions and expenditures between April 28 and May 12, show that Mrs. Poss, a former bank executive, raised $16,470 -- including a $10,000 personal loan -- and spent about $20,252 during that period.

Mr. Box had not filed his report with the city secretary by late Friday but said he had mailed the report. Mr. Box said he raised about $4,000 during the latest filing period and spent about $7,000.

Since the beginning of the year, Mrs. Poss has raised about $100,319 -- including $42,000 in personal loans to her campaign -- and spent about $97,092. During that period, Mr. Box has raised about $56,000 -- including about $10,000 in personal loans -- and spent about $61,000.

In the Place 9 contest, Ms. Miers collected about $29,660 in the latest filing period and spent about $23,000.

Mr. Garner did not file a report Friday but said he had raised and spent about $10,000.

Since January, Ms. Miers has raised about $174,000 -- including a $20,000 bank loan -- and spent about $138,000. Mr. Garner has raised and spent about $42,000.

In the May 6 election, Ms. Miers topped all candidates in the Place 9 race by capturing 40.1 percent of the vote. Mr. Garner came in second with 27.6 percent.

In the Place 5 race, Ms. Poss finished first with 47.6 percent of the vote, followed by Mr. Box with 28.1 percent.
