Follow the Money: Where Gulfport Mayoral Candidates Get Their Money



Follow the Money: Where Gulfport Mayoral Candidates Get Their Money

Each of the two candidates hoping to serve Gulfportians as their next mayor must submit treasurer reports to the City Clerk. On each report they must declare all donations, both monetary and in-kind, they received. The candidates may receive donations through midnight tonight (Thursday, March 7, 2013) and must turn in their final report this Friday. Here’s what each candidate has collected thus far; we will update these numbers after the clerk receives the final reports. Except for obvious spelling errors, we have presented the names as submitted by the campaign’s treasurer.
