Knoxville, TN – The Mark Padgett for Knoxville City Mayor campaign (www.VotePadgett.com) today announced a fundraising total of more than $316,000. The campaign raised $45,015 in July and currently has over $183,000 cash-on-hand ($132,900 for the primary).
“I continue to be humbled and grateful by the support I have received from the community,” said Padgett. “The financial support is needed, but more important is the growing number of Knoxville voters joining our campaign to keep Knoxville moving forward. As I knock on doors and meet with families and businesses across the city, one thing is clear: Knoxvillians want a mayor focused on growing our economy so we can invest in our neighborhoods and improve city services. With just thirty days until voters head to the polls, I urge everyone to encourage their friends, families, and colleagues to register to vote.”
The official report will be filed – and available online – with the Knox County Election Commission on August 8, 2011.
