First-time candidate Hodge raises over $30K in District 3 Supervisor race, latest finance reports show

We had reported earlier about Dan Miller’s campaign fundraising for the District 3 Supervisor’s race. Dan’s latest campaign finance reports are  here and here.

Now Hilary Hodge has filed her latest campaign finance reports. The report is here. Hodge also issued this press release:

“A report filed today with the Nevada County Clerk’s Office has revealed the fundraising numbers for Hilary Hodge, running for Nevada County’s District 3 Supervisor which includes the greater Grass Valley area.  Closing her first fiscal period, first-time candidate Hilary Hodge brought in $30,427.68 in financial contributions between August 1st and December 31st of 2017. Her campaign received an additional $7,763.17 in in-kind contributions.

“Unlike some politicians who rely on big-dollar contributions from business interests, the overwhelming majority of Hilary Hodge’s contributions came as relatively small donations from individuals. Hilary received financial support from nearly 300 individuals and small businesses, and the amounts were typically in the $25 to $200 range.

“’We are running a grass-roots campaign with the help and support of the entire community,’ said Hilary Hodge, who has pledged not to take corporate money. ‘Our fundraising strategy is to include all people at all levels who wish to contribute. Our campaign believes that no contribution is too small.’

“Hilary announced her run for Supervisor in August 2017 to a warm welcome from the community.  ‘Folks are excited for a fresh perspective for Nevada County government,’ said Hilary. The campaign has held public ‘meet and greets’ nearly every week since August and will continue to do so throughout 2018.  The election is June 5th 2018.”
