Ron Salem clears $150K on hand in Jacksonville Council race

The money chase in the Jacksonville City Council at-large group 2 race continues to go Republican Ron Salem‘s way.

February saw Salem clear $150,000 cash on hand between hard money and lucre in his “Moving Jacksonville Forward” political committee.

Salem brought in $6,800 in new money to his campaign account in February, despite a $1,000 refund to Gate Petroleum.

The vast majority of the new money came from the energy sector and nursing home interests.

All told, Salem has over $143,500 on hand in his campaign account, and an additional $8,000 in his committee.

Salem is well ahead of his two opponents.

Former Jacksonville City Councilman Bill Bishop has not filed February numbers yet but had just over $13,000 at the end of January.

And Democrat Darren Mason just launched his campaign in March.
