Holt raises $142k in first month of OKC mayoral campaign


David Holt OKC Mayoral Campaign Tops $142,000 in 1st Month

With the election now ten months away, the campaign to elect David Holt the next Mayor of Oklahoma City announced today that it raised $142,841 in the first month since Holt’s announcement.    The geographically diverse support included donations from 36 different zip codes across the Oklahoma City metro.

The amount of $142,841 is what the campaign had received as of Friday, March 31st.   The end of March was the end of a quarter, meaning that in the coming weeks, as required by state law, the campaign will publicly file a detailed report of its fundraising through March 31st.   Still in its early stages, the campaign has not yet held a fundraising event or distributed a fundraising letter.

“We are so grateful for the support we have received in these early weeks,” said David Holt.   “The volunteer sign-ups, the endorsements, and the donations have overwhelmed us.   Specifically in regards to donations, we know that it will take major financial resources to get our optimistic message out to the people of Oklahoma City, and though we recognize we have a long way to go, we feel blessed by the support we have already received.   The donations have come from people from all walks of life and from all across Oklahoma City.  They all have in common that they want to see Oklahoma City’s renaissance continue.”

The campaign to elect David Holt the next Mayor of Oklahoma City kicked off with Holt’s announcement video on February 27th.   That was followed 48 hours later by the announcement of a first wave of 450 endorsements.   Both the video and the endorsement list can be viewed at holtformayor.com.
