Leon County School Superintendent Jackie Pons, who has weathered a turbulent year or so at the school district, proved that he still has support in the community. Pons reported today that he raised $108,000 during August. This was Pons first report since deciding to seek re-election.
Pons told Tallahassee Reports that ” I am proud and thankful for our supporters which include teachers, administrators, and others who believe in what we have been doing in the schools. I plan on making sure everyone in this district knows about the positive outcomes we have worked hard to achieve.”
Pons’ report reveals that he made a $3,000 loan to his account. Accounting for that loan, Pons reported 340 donations for a total of $105,000. That is approximately $308 per donation. The maximum donation allowed is $1,000.
