Jacksonville political veteran Matt Carlucci, a Republican running for City Council in At Large Group 4, became the first candidate this cycle to clear $250,000 raised.
Carlucci, who seeks to return to Jacksonville’s legislative body, drew from a diverse group of contributors again in March, as he brought in over $29,000.
Republicans, such as U.S. Rep. John Rutherford, former City Council President Kevin Hyde, and former Council colleague Dick Kravitz, gave to Carlucci, as did Democrats, such as School Board member Warren Jones and City Council candidate Sunny Gettinger.
Corporate interests, such as the Haskell Company and J.B. Coxwell Contracting, likewise featured on the contribution list.
The $29,150 raised by Carlucci is his biggest single month haul since July 2017, and comes after another former councilman, Don Redman, became the second candidate in the race.
Redman has yet to file his first fundraising report as of Friday afternoon; Carlucci has $235,000 cash on hand.
