Johnson winning mayoral war chest battle
Johnson’s campaign committee, Friends of Harvey Johnson, raised $108,969 in 2012 and spent $16,220, much of it advertising-related. His campaign ended the year with $107,442 cash on hand, some of which may have been left over from the election four years ago.
His donations came from a mix of businesses of individuals, most commonly around $500 to $1,000. The top individual donations were from Glenda Glover, former dean of Jackson State University, who gave $5,000, and Robert Agbede of Pittsburgh, president of a water engineering firm. Other donors to Johnson included former Mayor Kane Ditto, Flowood Mayor Gary Rhoads, contractors and several law and consulting firms.
Lee’s group, Friends of Jonathan Lee, raised $54,349 and spent all but $12,582 of it. Most of his campaign expenses so far were payments to Hendrix and Dometz Organizational Solutions and JW Turner Consulting LLC, who are helping run his campaign.
