Lenny Curry political committee takes in $8,500 in last reporting period

Lenny Curry

Ending a period of two months without contributions, the political committee of Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry broke that dormancy during the most recent reporting period.

“Build Something That Lasts” collected $8,500 from Oct. 15 to Oct. 21; all contributions were made on Oct. 20.

Among the contributors: US Assure — an insurance company helmed by Ty Petway, one of the members of the politically connected Petway family — gave $5,000.

 Southern Strategy Group, the government relations company, gave $2,000.

Meanwhile, the other $1,500 came from three affiliates of the Vestcor real estate development company, the company of politically connected Ambassador John Rood.

TVC Development gave $500. This “subsidiary of The Vestcor Companies, develops housing under the Housing Credit and Mortgage Revenue Bond programs, as well as other financing programs that assist in the creation of affordable multifamily rental communities.”

Among its projects: the “Lofts at LaVilla,” which is expected to provide a boost to the long-suffering neighborhood via new workforce housing developments, as part of Jacksonville’s perpetual gentrification of its urban core neighborhoods.

Vestcor Communities and Vestcor Fund XXII Ltd. likewise each gave $500.

The committee has roughly $228,000 on hand.
