Kim White Receives More Than $350,000 Since Previous Financial Filing; Tim Kelly Brings In $340,465 Including Another $100,000 Loan

Tuesday, April 6, 2021

In her most recent financial filing, Chattanooga mayoral candidate Kim White said she received more than 450 donations amounting to $350,000. She said donations to her campaign now total $984,843.50, ranging from $5 to $1,600. More than 1,425 donors from every ZIP code of the city have contributed to her campaign since August, campaign officials said.

 

Tim Kelly in his financial filing said he took in $340,465, including another $100,000 he loaned to the campaign.

He earlier made a number of loans that added to $1,088,200. The Kelly campaign spent $519,038 in the most recent period. 

“We are entering the final week of this campaign with an overwhelming surge of support,” said Ms. White. “From the beginning, we have measured our ability to reach and rally voters through what is tangible: our growing volunteer base, countless conversations with supporters, thousands of voters who cast ballots and unbelievable funds raised. Unlike irrelevant polls that have consistently underestimated us, this filing directly reflects the true strength of our campaign. We look to Election Day with incredible optimism for the future of our city.” 

She said as of today, 40 percent of all donations are $200 or less and 50 percent are $250 or less. A majority of donors are small business owners, retirees and homemakers.

 

Fundraising for Ms. White is managed by treasurer Mary Kilbride and a finance committee comprised of civic and business leaders led by Mitch Patel and Alexis Bogo.
