Campaign Supporting JFS Levy Raised More Than $21,000

6/18/18 – 6:54 A.M.

The committee that supported a 1.2-mill, 10-year property tax for the Hancock County Department of Job and Family Services spent a little more than $17,000 to support the effort. Campaign finance reports show the committee raised just over $21,000.

The levy ended up failing. Only 41 percent of the ballots cast were in favor of the measure.

Candidates or campaign committees that spent or received $1,000 or more had to file pre-election and post-election campaign finance reports. Friday was the deadline to file post-election reports with Hancock County Board of Elections.
