Donate and Campaign sources and uses:
Times are difficult in Calgary, and money should not buy elections. I am putting every effort into my campaign to be as cost-effective and efficient as possible, any money donated is used to engage voters. As such I have provided a budget as to where donated funds have been utilized.
If Calgary continues to elect candidates who spend $100,000's of dollars on elections, that should only cost a max $10,000; we can only expect the same frivolous spending once in office.
The incumbent Ward 2 Councilor spend over $75,000 on the 2013 election for 33% of the Ward 2 votes.
Incumbent 2013 Campaign donations and contributors.
Accountability starts before a candidate is elected.
The best way to help is to tell a friend.
Donations to date: $950
In-kind equivalency: $4,000 (approximately)
*All donations are from individuals who reside in Ward 2
Fundraising Goal: $10,000
What I need support with: Volunteers, organizing town halls and community engagements, and word of mouth (tell your neighbours and friends).
Where I need financial support: Facebook ads, second round of sign purchasing, community engagement initiatives.
A note: I am focusing on intrinsic value, function over form. It is the message of accountability and the entrepreneurial values of doing much with very little that I want to bring to City Hall.
Your donation will go to help Jennifer build community and voter engagement. Every little bit helps.
Jennifer will post an updated campaign budget weekly, so you know how your donation is used.
