Woodson Leads The Money Race


There are less than 8 weeks to go before election day. In the final days leading up to November 8th, you can expect to see a mailbox full of flyers claiming the photo of the person you see is the best candidate in the race. Those flyers cost big money. Here’s how the Fort Myers Beach town council candidates stack up in the money race.

Karen Woodson leads the money raising race with a total of $21,440. Woodson pulled in another $6,900 in August, including $1,000 contribution’s (the max an individual can give) from Eddie Rood, Alex King and Denny Shirley from MN.
