Toms, Musselwhite Leading Cash Race in Warner Robins

A retired firefighter and the city's public-works director are leading the money race for Warner Robins mayor.

Randy Toms and Joe Musselwhite have the most money on hand as the race enters its final four weeks, according to records filed with the state's Ethics Commission.

According to those records, as of Sept. 30:

Toms, the retired firefighter, had raised $22,769, spent $15,745 and had $7,022 on hand.

Musselwhite, the public works director, had raised $17,799, spent $11,446 and had $6,352 in the bank.

They and four other candidates are running to replace Chuck Shaheen as mayor in the Nov. 5 election. Early voting begins Oct. 15 and runs through Nov. 1, according to the city clerk's office.

So far, another candidate, Chuck Chalk, has spent the most. Chalk lost a runoff to Shaheen in 2009.

Through the end of last month, Chalk had raised $20,240, spent  $18,033 and had $2,206.

City council member Daron Lee had $2,057 on hand. He raised  $6,472 and spent $4,415.

Another council member, Mike Brashear, was right behind him: He raised $14,731, spent $12, 750 and had $1,962 left over.

The sixth candidate, Eva Folse, apparently had not filed a financial report by last week's deadline.
