May was a quiet fundraising month for Lenny Curry’s political committee

With campaigns up and down the ticket attracting the attention of Jacksonville’s donor class, it was perhaps inevitable that Lenny Curry‘s political committee would have a sluggish May.

A total of $3,000 in new money was the slowest fundraising since the PAC started raising money last year, offset by $26,178 of new spending, of which $20,000 went to Meteoric Media for a research fee.

Despite a low-key May, Build Something that Lasts is still in healthy shape. It has raised north of $624,000 since its inception, and has spent over $351,000, leaving it with almost $275,000 cash on hand.

Those watching the Jacksonville donor class will be watching the Melissa Nelson campaign, the Yes for Jacksonville account supporting the pension-tax referendum, and various races for offices in Tallahassee, to see where the money went in May.
