Susan Haynie’s Boca Raton Mayoral campaign announced that contributions from the second- and third-quarter fundraising periods total over $60,000.
“I am honored by the broad-based support my campaign has received from across Boca Raton,” Haynie said in a statement released by her campaign. “We are running a grassroots campaign made up of residents, neighborhood leaders and community advocates.”
As deputy mayor of Boca Raton, Haynie’s priorities have included keeping taxes low, improving public safety, protecting Boca’s beaches and ensuring the city is on a sustainable economic, fiscal and environmental path, she said.
“People are excited about the campaign we are running and about bringing my experience and leadership to the Mayor’s office,” Haynie said in the statement. “I am looking forward to sharing my message of fiscally responsible leadership, protecting our neighborhoods and ethical public service with the residents and voters of Boca Raton.”
According to the campaign report filed with the city clerk Wednesday, Haynie raised over $25,000 in the third quarter. A Sept. 25 campaign kickoff event was attended by over 200 Boca Raton residents, neighborhood leaders and friends, according to the campaign, which said it has received over 270 contributions from individuals and small businesses so far.
The mayoral race will appear on the March 11, 2014, municipal election ballot.
