DEERFIELD, IL – Julie Morrison, Democratic candidate for the 29th state Senate District, released her 2nd quarter fundraising report today. Morrison’s grassroots support comes from 80 different donors from a wide range of backgrounds.
“This campaign is not about special interests or people trying to buy influence. This race is about putting the interests of our community first,” Morrison said. “I am proud to have a groundswell of support from the voters in our community, not party extremists trying to buy a state Senate seat to promote their out of touch values.”
Morrison raised over $32,000 in the second quarter with over half of donations coming from within the district. Over 75% of donations were under $500. Morrison reports having over $62,000 left in her campaign fund.
“Our campaign is a great representation of the district. It is made up of business leaders, seniors, teachers, our neighbors, and everyone else who has an interest in making government work for the people again. Our support comes from Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike because everyone knows that we need to stop the political gridlock in Springfield,” Morrison said. “This is going to be a long campaign and there is a lot of work left to be done. I would like to thank everyone who has helped knock on doors, make phone calls, or raise money for my campaign.”
Julie Morrison is seeking to replace retiring state Senator Susan Garrett. The 29th District will cover parts of Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Deerfield, Highland Park, Lake Forest, and Lake Bluff. Morrison has served as West Deerfield Township Supervisor for the past 15 years.
