Today my campaign for Mayor announced that we raised over $155,000 since we first started campaigning at the end of July. The funds came from over 475 donors and the campaign has over $135,000 in cash on hand. More than three quarters of the funds raised came from within the city of Oakland.
You made this happen, and I want to thank you for your incredible support and for helping us have such an impressive showing. With this big news coming on the heels of the recent poll that showed us in a dead heat with the incumbent Mayor, it’s clear that Oaklanders are ready for real change, and that the momentum is with our campaign.
Thank you so much again for helping us get to where we are today.
I am so excited to continue to work with you in this new year to bring real change to our great city.
