Reaching Candidates: Campaign Funding

Reaching Candidates: Campaign Funding

A fund-raiser for Mutz last week was set in motion by local investor Wesley Barnett and co-hosted by 48 prominent couples and individuals. It raised around $30,000, Mutz said. Most of those donations will appear on the candidate’s next campaign reports, due Oct. 22 and 29. Mutz said he got a late start on fund-raising because he had no opponent until August, when Stevin decided to switch from challenging Commissioner Stephanie Madden to running for mayor. (Madden was re-elected last month when neither of the people who declared for her seat filed to run against her.) Here is a race-by-race summary of candidate fund-raising activity:

McCarley, an incumbent city commissioner, has made no loans to her campaign; not including her own donation of $1,000, she has collected $27,050, the largest amount any candidate has received from other people. She also had the most donations at the maximum amount of $1,000 (14), the highest average donation ($519.44) and the highest median donation ($500). Check thecityzenship.org for searchable lists of donations to the candidates running in the non-partisan Nov. 2 Lakeland elections.

Conversely, Terrell, who is challenging incumbent Mike Musick for a City Commission seat, had the most donors (87), the lowest average donation ($137) and the lowest median donation ($50), reflecting a reliance on a large number of smaller donors. Stevin, who is challenging Mayor Bill Mutz, had raised $34,034 by the end of September, according to campaign finance reports filed with the City Clerk’s Office. She has loaned her campaign $10,000, the largest amount among the six current candidates.
