San Francisco, CA - (April 29, 2016) In the second campaign finance disclosure report in the race for State Senate District 11 (San Francisco and Northern San Mateo County), Supervisor Scott Wiener raised a total of $1,331,231.99, $478,694.00 of that amount since January.
Wiener’s cash on hand of over $797,000 will allow the campaign to effectively communicate with June primary voters, while putting the campaign in strong financial position heading into the November election, where an extremely high voter turnout is expected.
Notable contributors among Wiener’s 1,811 donors - over 75% of whom reside inside the Senate District, and a majority of whom donated $250 or less – are Sheriff Vicki Hennessy, San Mateo Supervisor Adrienne Tissier, United Food and Commercial Workers union, Honor PAC (Latino/a LGBT advocacy organization) and Equality California (the nation’s largest statewide LGBT civil rights organization).
“Supervisor Wiener continues to demonstrate strong fundraising numbers that reflect support for his position on the issues, and the hard work is doing to earn voters’ support. This cross-section of the community believes Scott is the more effective leader on the critical issues that matter to them: housing affordability, transit reliability, healthcare access, public education, and protecting our environment,” stated Wiener campaign consultant Maggie Muir.
Highlights from Wiener's fundraising report include:
- 1,811 donors
