ATLANTA, GA… In the two-month reporting period ending March 31, Mary Norwood raised over a quarter of a million dollars and her campaign has more than $530,000 cash on hand.
The leading candidate in the 2017 race for Mayor of Atlanta continues to generate robust financial support from voters in every council district in the city. This second strong financial report adds powerful momentum to her efforts to dominate the race to become Atlanta’s next Mayor and the second woman to hold the post.
“The significant grassroots support I have from voters in every part of our city is extraordinary and I am extremely grateful,” Norwood said. “This new wave of contributions is a compelling indicator that Atlanta citizens want me to bring transparency to City Hall and transportation solutions and prosperity to all Atlantans.” Volunteers from more than 75% of Atlanta neighborhoods are active with her campaign and more than 90% of Norwood’s contributions are from individuals within the City of Atlanta. Norwood’s support underscores her city-wide reputation for having done the work to be out in front of major issues and get things done. “Voters trust me to tackle the issues they care about and to do what I say I will do. As Mayor, that’s what I’ll do for the future of our great city.”
