Kriseman Raises over $50,000 For Mayoral Bid

St. Petersburg mayoral frontrunner Rick Kriseman announced today that he brought in over $50,000 in the first reporting period of the runoff election. The former city councilman and state representative raised $59,004, bringing his cash on hand in the run-off election to $60,487.

"Once again, I am humbled by the outpouring of support for my campaign for mayor of St. Petersburg," said Kriseman. "This campaign has grown into a movement for a St. Petersburg with more jobs, better schools, and stronger neighborhoods. The people of this city want decisive leadership from City Hall and I am confident I will deliver that leadership as mayor."
Kriseman brought in over 200 contributions, 75% of which came from Pinellas County. A majority of the contributions came from within St. Petersburg.
 
Kriseman also had a strong showing at Tuesday night's St. Pete election debate at NOVA on MLK Street. Kriseman's direct contact with small business owners resonated well.
