Full media release announcing the June 30, 2017 financial disclosure report:
Peter Aman Reports Nearly $1.7 Million in Campaign Contributions
More Than $800,000 Cash-on-Hand
Insurgent Atlanta mayoral candidate Peter Aman continues to be a top competitor – against a field of politicians with nearly 100 years in office – in campaign contributions as well as cash-on-hand. In the latest campaign disclosure, Aman reports nearly $1.7 million raised.
During the recent period which spanned from April 1st through June 30th, the Aman campaign launched an aggressive marketing campaign featuring billboards across the city, cable and network television advertisements, traditional and new media marketing, as well as growing its campaign staff.
“I am excited that we are improving our position and engaging voters across the city,” said Aman. “I want voters to know that I will be a mayor who works for them, not interest groups. I’m running against nearly a century of inaction by lifelong candidates who have collectively run dozens of times and spent years honing fundraising networks. That’s why I have matched my donors dollar-for-dollar. My message is simple: I’m in this with you.”
With more than $800,000 cash-on-hand going into the qualifying period, the Aman campaign remains positioned to continue its surge.
The Aman campaign recently announced two significant endorsements. Current Atlanta City Councilwoman Yolanda Adrean, known as the financial steward of the council, said, “With nearly $14 billion in transportation and water infrastructure on the line, we need a mayor with the background and the backbone to manage Atlanta’s finances and its future in a transparent manner. Peter is the candidate I trust – and who Atlanta can trust – to champion our city and its residents. This is not just about Buckhead. This election is about all of Atlanta and Peter Aman is the one who will advance our city, together.”
Last week, transportation expert and former Councilwoman Clair Muller joined Adrean in endorsing Aman. “Atlanta is on the verge of becoming a victim of our success. Our city’s population is expected to double in just a few years. Peter is the one candidate who understands the need for a regional approach to solving our traffic challenges through transit and expanded transportation options,” said Muller.
The Aman campaign plans to continue its push over the next few weeks, with a series of community meetings called Coffee with the Candidate. The first two will be held Saturday, July 15, 10 a.m. at My Coffee Shop at 2462 Memorial Drive SE and 11:30 a.m. at Press and Grind, 992 N.Highland Avenue NE.
