Just to be up front.....it takes money to run a campaign AND to be a Officeholder.
You see...many things we as officeholders do throughout the year, either come from our campaign funds or our hip pocket.
We attend meetings, banquets, auctions, fundraisers, and support many community events throughout our terms.
We have things printed, take out public safety messages and become members of organizations. All of this is NOT paid with taxpayer money, but with your investment in me!
On average, it has cost about $10,000 every 4 years to do keep in front of the public's eye.
YES, donations do not buy you success, however, you know your funds are working hard within your communities by investing in me.
Thanks for your consideration!
