Team Tony Williams: We Had $426,000 on Hand at End of 2014

By ·

(Editor’s Note: For our analysis of this year’s record-low fundraising by Philadelphia’s mayoral candidates, check out Patrick Kerkstra’s report[1]. Holly Otterbein also has a report[2] on the neck-and-neck fundraising in the 2nd Council District race.)

[Update, 3:42 p.m.] State Sen. Anthony Williams, the presumed frontrunner[3] in the mayor’s race, had nearly $426,000 on hand at the end of last year, according to his campaign spokesman Albert Butler. We have not yet obtained Williams’ finance report.

[Original, 2:20 p.m.] Happy Campaign Finance Reporting Day[4]!

By the end of today, Philadelphia’s mayoral candidates must disclose how much money they raised in 2014. We’ve got our hands on a few of the reports so far. Here’s what we know right now:

As expected, the reports show that the candidates are raising much less money than in past mayoral elections. We’ll be updating this post throughout the day as more candidates file their reports.
