Midland City Council candidate Amy Stretcher Burkes raises $61,331 in campaign donations

0

Amy Stretcher Burkes topped early campaign fundraising reports for Midland City Council’s District 4 (generally West Midland) with $61,311 in campaign donations raised, according to reports filed this week.

Burkes’ report covered contributions through September 29 and was nearly $50,000 higher than Jim Gerety’s total political contributions of $11,450 during the first reporting period.

Another note from Burkes’ campaign is that it more than doubled the $27,530 that then-District 4 candidate Lori Blong reported raising on that first report in 2019. Blong reported more than $70,000 before Election Day, so there’s still work for Burkes to eclipse that total.

Burkes showed 10 donations of $1,000 or more, including $20,000 from Javaid Anwar and $10,000 from Jose Cuevas.

Burkes posted $8,013 in expenses and $61,331.77 in total political contributions held as of the last day of the reporting period.

Gerety showed five donations of $1,000 or more and loans to his campaign of $25,000, $5,000 and $500.

Credit card expenses totaled over $19,340.

Information from the District 4 candidates’ campaign finance reports was forwarded to the Midland City Clerk’s office this week.
