By David Skolnick



John A. McNally IV raised $131,854 in his successful campaign to win the Democratic primary for Youngstown mayor.

McNally, a former city law director and Mahoning County commissioner, beat council President Jamael Tito Brown by 2.16 percentage points, a 142-vote victory, in the May 7 primary.

Between April 18 and June 7, McNally received $23,901 in contributions and spent $28,508, most of it in the weeks leading to the primary, according to a post- primary finance report his campaign committee filed by Friday’s deadline with the county board of elections.

The report shows that McNally’s campaign spent $7,027 for an April 26 golf fundraiser, which raised $6,965 for his campaign.

Overall, McNally’s campaign spent $103,850 on the primary win, and as of June 7, the Democratic nominee had about $28,000 in his campaign account.

McNally will face four independent candidates in the November general election.

Brown’s campaign failed to file a post-primary finance report with the board of elections by Friday’s deadline.

Throughout the campaign, McNally had a significant financial lead over Brown. McNally raised $107,953 to $30,277 for Brown as of April 17, the most recent date the latter’s campaign provided financial information to the board of elections.

Matthew Smith, a third candidate in the Democratic campaign, who received 1.47 percent of the total primary vote, didn’t raise any money for his failed mayoral bid.
