HAPPY VALLEY, Ore.—Happy Valley Mayor Lori Chavez-DeRemer knocked it out of the park with her fundraising efforts in April.
Chavez-DeRemer launched her “50 for 50” fundraising campaign with the goal of raising $50,000 for her 50th birthday and succeeded in raising $59,015. Her opponent, incumbent Democrat state Rep. Janelle Bynum only raised $10,040. As of May 4th 2018, Chavez-DeRemer has $109,983.88 cash-on-hand while Bynum has $34,311.07.
Mayor Chavez-DeRemer’s campaign says the fundraising initiative was a huge hit because the district is ready for change and real leadership, and that she is earning support by executing a strategic campaign that employs cutting-edge technology and old-school grit. Chavez-DeRemer has walked nearly 2,000 doors in the district. She makes canvassing cool, her campaign says, she throws on her Adidas and FacebookLives during her walks. The Mayor is well-known in her district for her common-sense approach and warm-hearted demeanor.
Chavez-DeRemer says voters in the district are looking for a new leader:
“The fundraising numbers are encouraging. We are building momentum and my supporters keep me motivated. Getting out and talking with people has affirmed for me why I am putting my all into this campaign. This is all about community and standing up to the status quo. And the fundraising numbers reveal that my opponent isn’t getting support from real people. We anticipate the Unions and other special interest groups to dump a lot of money into her campaign at some point though, so we are going to stay focused on raising support and connecting with voters.”
