I want to thank you for your overwhelming support since we launched our campaign for Mayor of Long Beach. In just a few months we have raised over $220,000 - a significant amount in a short period of time. We could not have done this without you.
Our 2013 end of year report will show over $206,000 in contributions from August - December 31st. Since then, we have been back at work at building a strong financial position for the campaign ahead. These contributions will help us spread our positive message about growing the local economy and investing in education and technology.
We've raised money from all 9 City Council Districts and have contributions from $5 to $750. In fact, over $50,000 of our donations came in online. With 71 days until the primary election, we are well positioned to raise the funds that will be necessary to run a campaign that you will be proud of.
This election is going to take much more support, and I am hoping that I can count on you today.
Join us this Wednesday, January 29, at 6:00 pm at Fuego at the Hotel Maya for a special fundraising reception. To RSVP for the event, you can email Stephanie Graves at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are just getting started, and I am looking forward to the April election.
Go Long Beach!
Vice Mayor Robert Garcia
