Wake County school board member Bill Fletcher has a two-to-one fundraising lead over challenger Nancy Caggia in the District 9 contest in Cary.
According to Fletcher’s latest campaign finance report, he reported raising $11,125.21 with $7,895.13 on hand at the end of August. According to Caggia's latest campaign finance report, she reported raising $5,243.03 with $2,700.57 on hand.
Fletcher, a Republican, received his largest donation of $4,000 from his cousin, Jim Goodmon, the president of Capitol Broadcasting. In the past few years, Goodmon has been known in Wake school circles as being an outspoken critic of the former GOP board majority and a visible backer of this fall's school bond issue.
