San Diego – Marie Waldron announced that her campaign will report over $108,000 raised for her first campaign finance disclosure – a period covering April through June 30th. Most impressivley, she will show over $100,000 cash-on-hand!
Waldron, a 4-term city council member and small businessowner, in Escondido is running in the North Inland San Diego Assembly district.
“I am proud to have the support of so many people from around San Diego County,” said Waldron. “As Deputy Mayor on the Escondido City Council, I have demonstrated my commitment to sound fiscal management and common-sense policies that expand our economy and create jobs. It’s time for Sacramento to do the same.”
Waldron raised over $57,000 from individuals during the period and matched her donors support with $51,000 of her own. Waldron believes the state legislature is out of touch with the needs of Californians and must stop driving economic opportunities and job growth out of the state. She cites Sacramento’s addiction to spending, over-bearing regulations, taxes on small businesses, and a high tax burden on families already struggling to make ends meet.
Marie Waldron formally launched her campaign for State Assembly in late March. She is a small business owner and has been on the Escondido City Council since 1998. Waldron has been a staunch advocate for fiscal restraint and accountability, including balancing the city’s operating budget, while on the council, and has opposed all water rate and tax increases.
