As the candidate that tries the hardest to keep voters informed, I’m posting a PDF of my campaign finances before the 4pm deadline today.
It shows that I raised $3455 by the deadline of the 19th- spent $2650 so far. I had two fundraisers that brought in $805.
If you look at this report, just be warned- it’s as convoluted as the tax code- asking for different kinds of forms for different kinds of donations etc.
As to my donors, the highest donation was $250 from Terry Posey and Kevin Busarow bought two seats at my chicken parmigiana dinner for $250. The average donation worked out to about $100.
So far my entire campaign has cost less than half of what either Nan Whaley or AJ Wagner spent on each of their websites.
My major vendor is The Next Wave- my own firm. I bill my campaign for work that my employees do, not for the work I do. Most of the money goes for printing.
I’m helped out a bit since Mayor Leitzell and David Greer went thirds with me on a printing run for a shared piece, and that I’m reusing yard signs from two campaigns ago.
I’ve also donated my time to design and prep for print both Leitzell and Greer’s materials.
I will post the reports of the other candidates as they become available.
