Commissioner Shawn Cerra and School Board Member Daniel Foganholi continue to raise funds ahead of the city’s lone competitive race, now less than three months away. 

So far, both campaigns for Seat 2 have brought in over $5,000, and less than $400 separates the two candidates’ total donations to date.

Cerra’s campaign brought in an additional $1,880 in donations during July and spent $37.04, according to campaign finance reports.

Most of those funds came from real estate developer AMERA Corporation, located at 2900 University Drive. They donated $1,000. 

The rest of Cerra’s donations came from six individuals, including those in the education community. 

Scott Fiske, former principal of Coconut Creek High School and Western High School, donated $250. He is currently the principal of Gateway High School in Centennial, Colorado. 

Cerra’s sole expense in July was to PayPal. 

Cerra’s total monetary donations through July 31 amount to $5,380. His campaign has spent $1,179.25 so far. 

Foganholi brought in an additional $500 in July and spent $586, according to his most recent campaign finance reports. Corey Staniscia, on behalf of the consulting group CSC Group, was the sole donor in July.

Foganholi’s campaign spent an additional $586 for services with Customink, LLC. 

Through July 31, Foganholi’s campaign received $5,002 and spent $2,076.85.

Cerra, who is running for reelection for a second term, was originally elected to the city commission in June 2019, following former commissioner Dan Daley’s election to the Florida State House.

Foganholi was appointed to the School Board 5th Seat by Governor Ron DeSantis in May, following former member and current State Senator Rosalind Osgood’s resignation to pursue election to the Florida Senate.

If Foganholi gets elected to Seat 2, he would be the city’s first Brazilian-American commissioner.

The election for Seat 2 will be held on Nov. 8. Early voting will start on Oct. 24 and continue through Nov. 6.
