Republican Mayoral candidate Paula Hughes filed her financial report this morning.
For the reporting period of 1/1/2010 to 12/31/2010, Paula raised $157,494.50 and ended the period with $86,605.35 cash on hand.
From a statement:
[…] Over 97% of the dollars Hughes raised came from Fort Wayne and Allen County residents. Â This is a stark contrast from Mayor Henry’s campaign Â finance report which shows that less than 42% of his dollars came from the same area. Â In fact, Paula Hughes received more donations from Fort Wayne and Allen County than incumbent Mayor Tom Henry did in 2010.
[…] To conclude her remarks regarding the 2010 campaign finance filing report, Hughes said, “This report proves that I have unprecedented grassroots support and that we will be able to raise the necessary resources to get our message out to the voters.”
I’ll have the entire press release posted later this afternoon/evening.
