A $5,000 contribution from the Mobile Fire Fighters Association is helping fuel William C. Carroll's effort to unseat incumbent District 2 City Councilman Thomas Sullivan in city elections Tuesday.
The 35-year-old general contractor's campaign opened the filing period with a balance of $367.97, raised $15,640 in cash contributions and spent $6,694.05, according to his final pre-election financial report.
Carroll's entered the race's waning days with a balance of $10,253.92.
Others contending for the District 2 seat are Johnny Burroughs and Jeffery Jones.
A runoff election, if necessary, would be held Sept. 13.
