BALTIMORE, MD – Today, former Obama administration official and Democratic mayoral candidate Mary Miller reported raising over $725,000 in the race for mayor of Baltimore with an additional $1.5 million self-contributed. The campaign has spent $1.8 million to-date on voter contact, including TV, radio, digital, direct mail and a citywide canvassing and phone banking program, which represents 87% of expenses.
This fundraising effort reflects the momentum of her campaign and the enthusiasm Mary has received from the people of Baltimore.
“I am so grateful for the support our campaign has received,” Miller said. “We have a broad base of support working to make Baltimore the city we know it can be.”
In this campaign for mayor, Mary has made the following commitments to the people of Baltimore:
- Mary is committed to having no outside business dealings as mayor, as should all other candidates, and every future mayor.
- Mary is committed to full transparency, having previously released five years of federal and state tax returns, more than Baltimore’s current financial disclosure rules require.
- Mary is committed to not accepting a salary as mayor.
