Hakeem Says He Made Full Disclosure Of Prior Campaign Funds

Friday, January 11, 2013

City Council candidate in the 9th District, Yusuf Hakeem, is releasing specifics on the disbursement of funds remaining in his campaign account in 2006. He resigned from the Council in that year to take the appointment of then-Gov. Phil Bredesen to the State Board of Probations and Parole.

Mr. Hakeem’s financial disclosure form for this period, which was submitted to the Hamilton County Election Commission and will be posted by the commission, according to its staff, next week on the commission’s website, shows that all $35,882 left in his campaign fund was properly disbursed and is fully accounted for. The majority of the funds were donated to houses of worship, schools and nonprofit organizations, including Inner City Ministries, Howard High School, Orchard Knob Elementary School, Hope for Chattanooga and the Henry Branch YMCA. 

“I am happy to publicly share the details of this disclosure,” Mr. Hakeem stated. “My dedication has always been to the community, and all of the organizations I supported with these donations have continued to do outstanding work in improving District 9.”
