On Wednesday Brigid Shea's campaign for Travis County Commissioner, Precinct 2 released their financial report for the period of 7/1/13 to 12/31/14, demonstrating the breadth and depth of support for Shea's campaign. The announcement has already garnered the attention of several Austin media outlets, including Infact Daily.
Infact Daily reports:
"When it comes to raising campaign funds, Brigid Shea leads the candidates in the Precinct 2 Travis County Commissioner race, with almost double the amount of contributions given to her two opponents combined. They are running for the seat vacated by Sarah Eckhardt in order to run for County Judge...
...From the beginning I’ve said this campaign is a big tent,” said Shea. “My contributors range from former political opponents to environmentalists and many in between. With so many important issues to work on in the community, we can’t afford to let ourselves be divided over personal disagreements. It’s crucial we have a civil dialogue and pursue opportunities to work together.”
With over 450 individuals and organizations contributing to her campaign, Brigid heads in to the final stretch of the primary campaign in strong position, leading in fundraising, cash on hand, public supporters, Facebook likes and having earned numerous key endorsements including that of Sen. Kirk Watson, The Austin Firefighters Association and Clean Water Action to name a few.
