Mayor’s second-round candidates file campaign finance reports – The Vicksburg Post
Anyone who wins the Democratic Party’s first run-off on April 27 as mayor will have their work cut out for replenishing their campaign war coffers.
In reports filed Tuesday, Shawn Jackson and Troy Kimble both showed less than $ 200 on hand, days before the end of the second-round campaign.
Jackson’s latest deposit shows his campaign has $ 171 on hand as it enters the final week.
In the report filed Tuesday, Jackson detailed $ 5,900 in contributions in the latest filing, but only detailed $ 900 of that amount. Detailed contributions show a contribution of $ 600 from Madison businessman Frank O’Keefe and $ 300 from Vicksburg dentist Dr. Kenneth Nash.
The report also provides an overview of his campaign expenses, which totaled $ 8,397 in the most recent period. Of this amount, $ 1,752 was broken down and included $ 1,175 in advertising with local media; a payment of $ 500 to WMPR in Jackson; and $ 375 for printing with Jackson-based A2X.
The largest expense reported was $ 2,907.46 paid to Alpha Graphics, located in Pearl, for what was referred to as “printing”. The report also shows a payment to Entergy in the amount of $ 252.95 for electricity at his campaign headquarters and a payment of $ 250 to AT&T for “phone and data”.
Kimble donates $ 1,000 to his own campaign
Kimble completes his campaign a week before the second round.
In a campaign finance report filed Monday, Kimble showed that he contributed $ 1,000 of his own money to his campaign. He and Jackson will meet on Tuesday in a Democratic Party runoff. The winner will advance to the June 8 general election against incumbent Mayor George Flaggs Jr. and Daryl Hollingsworth.
In addition to his personal contribution, Kimble reported an in-kind contribution from Ricky Hearn, owner of Hearn Construction, who paid $ 1,111 for a campaign event at the Pizza Inn on April 16.
Kimble detailed $ 3,013.74 of expenses in the latest filing. The largest itemized expenses were a total of $ 1,755.43 in campaign materials purchased from H&M Promotional Products and $ 1,022.50 in online and radio advertising with local outlets.
As of Monday’s filing, Kimble shows his campaign has $ 96.88 on hand.
Because Kimble and Jackson are in the second round on April 27, the two were required to file a campaign fundraising report no later than 5 p.m. Tuesday.
