Mayoral candidate Lenny Curry had his best fundraising results in several months during November, bringing in more than $226,300 according to financial records.
Mayor Alvin Brown raised $26,108 through his “Taking Jacksonville to the Next Level” state committee. His largest donation was $25,000 from the Farah & Farah law firm.
Brown netted $7,008 for the month, though, after returning $19,100 to donors who contributed at an October fundraiser in New York that was hosted by embattled comedian Bill Cosby. Brown made the decision to return the funds in late November after sexual assault allegations against Cosby dating back decades resurfaced.
Brown’s figures raised at the local level weren’t filed online as of 5:45 p.m. They are due today.
City Council member Bill Bishop raised $6,360 during the month, bringing his total to $66,825.
Curry raised $184,500 through his “Together for a Greater Jacksonville” state committee, also his best result since taking in $408,100 in his first report in June. The November state report shows nine donors who contributed $10,000 or more.
The largest donors for the month were Joe Anderson, Tom Petway, David Stein and Peter Rummell, each who gave $25,000.
Bill Foley, Wayne Weaver, Preston Haskell, Gerald Jordan and A Committee for a Stronger Florida each gave $10,000. Foley gave Brown $25,000 in April.
At the local level, Curry raised $41,800.
