Scripps finance filing shows broad base of district support
256 individual donors help former Representative top $30,000 in total contributions for 2015
NORTHPORT – Former State Representative Dan Scripps yesterday filed his 2015 year-end campaign finance report with the state, a report that shows his campaign with both a strong financial position and a broad base of individual donors as the 2016 election year gets underway.
Highlights from the report include:
· 256 individual donors contributed to the Scripps campaign between October 21 and December 31
· 75% of all contributions during that time came from individuals living in the 101st District
· Scripps attracted financial support from individuals living in 31 of the 33 zip codes that cover the 101st District – an incredibly broad base of support from every corner of the district
· Scripps raised $22,900 during the period covered by the report, for a year-end total of $30,245 raised. Scripps begins the election year with more than $25,000 in the bank.
“This filing shows that the people of the 101st District are hungry for a state government that again puts people first,” Scripps said. “People in Northwest Michigan recognize that we deserve better than what we’re getting from our state government, and are coming together around a positive vision for our state. With backing from every corner of Benzie, Leelanau, Manistee, and Mason counties, this report shows this campaign gathering steam, and building an operation that is positioned to win in both August and November.”
