Phyllis Busansky Fundraising Numbers
The St. Petersburg Times reports that Democratic Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections candidate Phyllis Busansky has fundraising advantage over incumbant Buddy Johnson.
Phyllis Busansky, who's running for supervisor of elections, raised $48,000 in the past three months, according to a report filed with the county.
Buddy Johnson, the current supervisor, raised only $11,300.
Busansky has raised a total of $82,196. Johnson is lagging behind at $42,460 Johnson downplayed his fundraising woes:
"I'm focused on this job. Not on fundraising," Johnson said, noting that it has been a particularly busy year, with the switch to a new voting system.
That is hysterical. Subpoena server Dan Neatherly could not find Johnson at either of his offices for 18 days. Johnson wasn't even accused of criminal wrongdoing. He was a witness called by the NAACP. Johnson's attorney Kathy Harris advised Johnson not to say if he was avoiding the subpoena.
Another fun piece of trivia: Johnson and Harris were both involved in Steve Holub being paid $24,142 of taypayers money. The deal was Holub would resign and not speak about his time in the Supervisor of Elections office.
