City Councilor and candidate for Mayor Michelle Wu announced that her Mayoral campaign has more than $1 million in the bank, reaching a key milestone that puts her campaign in a strong position for the months ahead.
In a powerful demonstration of Wu’s growing grassroots backing, the campaign has over 6,280 donors at an average contribution amount of $93 per donation. Wu has received thousands of donations from Boston residents.
The funds allow the Wu campaign to build up a strong team and make long-term plans, and demonstrates that Michelle Wu’s message of doing more to keep families in Boston, transform our schools, close the childcare gap, free the T and bring a Boston Green New Deal has earned grassroots support.
Team Wu also recently surpassed the 3,000 signatures collected threshold the same day signature gathering began.
“I’m inspired everyday to see the grassroots momentum for our campaign matching the energy for bold, urgent leadership across our neighborhoods. Whether it’s chipping in five dollars, making phone calls, or joining our events, our supporters and volunteers share a powerful vision of what’s possible for Boston to meet the moment. We are building a movement not just for Election Day, but to follow through on the charge to be bold and do more in office,” said Michelle Wu.
