While your Sept. 16 article, “Council Campaign Donations Subdued,” correctly states that my first campaign report showed zero contributions and zero expenditures, I feel that your article unfairly implies that this is because I entered the race at such a late date. In fact, I am not accepting campaign contributions as I have already reached my fundraising goal of zero dollars. Due to the fact that I am assuming Kenneth Johnson’s place on the ballot, I do not have to pay the $50 filing fee with the county clerk. As a result of this I do not need to raise any money in order to run my campaign. Since I entered the race on Aug. 29, several people have offered to contribute to my campaign, but I have refused all financial contributions. I feel that there is enough money in politics as it is, and I feel that this race can be won without it. I have accepted a few small in kind donations of used materials that I have used to create some homemade yard signs, and this will be reflected in my next finance report. As the race progresses I may accept further in-kind donations, but I remain committed to refusing all monetary donations to my campaign for the duration of this election.
