Mike Mikurak hangs on to fundraising lead over Charlie Justice in Pinellas commission race

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

First-time candidate Mike Mikurak is holding firmly to his lead in the fundraising race for the District 3 at-large seat on the Pinellas County Commission.

Mikurak, a Republican, raised another $2,405 in June, bringing his total to $102,885. That is almost double Charlie Justice’s total of $55,582. Justice, the incumbent, raised $1,100 in June.

Justice could narrow that gap or overcome it. He has a fundraiser scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. July 26 at the Sheraton Sand Key, 1160 Gulf Blvd., Clearwater Beach. It’s hosted by fellow Democratic county Commissioners Janet Long and Ken Welch.

The District 3 at-large seat is voted on countywide.

The election is Nov. 8.
