Golden, CO, July 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Jason Bane, candidate for the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners (District 2), announced today that his campaign raised more money in 2008 than any other candidate for county office in Jeffco.
The committee “Elect Jason Bane” reported 300 individual donors and $37,445 raised in just under six months (Bane began raising money in February 2008), which is more money than any of the other candidates running for County Commissioner.
“I’m thrilled with the amount of money we were able to raise in such a short period of time, but I’m most proud of the fact that more than 300 people contributed to my campaign,” said Bane, who noted that 125 contributions were for $50 or less. “My contributions come from hundreds of Jeffco residents who are eager for a new direction in Jefferson County, not in a handful of big donations from developers and landowners.”
Bane’s 300 donors in six months are more than his opponent, Kevin McCasky, raised in the entire year when he first ran for commissioner in 2004.
Last week Bane received the endorsement of Congressman Ed Perlmutter, and he has already been endorsed by the Arvada Police Officers’ Association.
Jason Bane is running for the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners in District 2, although every Commissioner is elected by countywide vote. He is an award-winning journalist and longtime community activist who currently serves on the Board of the Jefferson County PTA. Jason and his wife, Julie, are lifelong residents of Jefferson County (Jason’s family has been in Jeffco for three generations); they live in Lakewood with their 2-year-old daughter, Stella, and are expecting their second child in September.
