JANE DITTMAR CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCES FUNDRAISING TOTALS SURPASSING QUARTER MILLION MARK
Charlottesville, Virginia (April 14, 2016) – Jane Dittmar’s congressional campaign today announced that 1st quarter fundraising totals surpassed the quarter-million mark. With over 600 individual donors, contributions ranged from $5 to $5,400.
“Thank you, thank you to every single one of our contributors who has supported this campaign,” Dittmar said. “This fundraising number is a reflection of the immense support that our campaign and our message have received since our September launch. We have been fortunate enough to work with incredible Democratic committees, community leaders, and others who have helped us get the word out. We look forward to continuing to listen to the people of the 5th as we continue our work.”
The campaign continues to reach district residents through meet & greet events, fundraisers, committee meetings, and community events. Dittmar recently spoke at the Rappahannock Democrats’ Blue State Bluegrass Brunch and the campaign has events planned in Farmville, Chatham, and Henry County in the coming weeks. The campaign has been holding round table advisory meetings to gather information on important topics such as veterans’ affairs, the environment, citizen safety, foreign policy, healthcare, and more.
Dittmar will work to improve the economic infrastructure in the district so that everyone in the 5th can have the opportunity to build a strong future for themselves and their families. “I’m running for Congress because I believe that everyone in our district deserves to be connected to opportunity,” Dittmar said. “Equal opportunity for success starts with a good education and continues with a good job to provide for your family.”
Dittmar plans to put her mediation skills to work in Washington to bring together different opinions to find solutions to the challenges that we face here in our district, in Virginia, and as a nation. Dittmar intends to work with local, state, and federal governments in order to connect Virginia with the new economy by harnessing the funding and resources that are already available in Washington. Dittmar will be formally nominated as the Democratic candidate at the 5th District Convention on May 7th.
