MEISNER DOMINATES FUNDRAISING, POLLING IN NEW NUMBERS
Not accepting corporate PAC money, double-digit lead
Oakland County, MI - Andy Meisner, candidate for Oakland County Executive, has raised
$680,142 since launching his campaign in Ferndale last March and begins the year with over
$500,000 cash on hand. Meisner is leading the Democratic field in total fundraising numbers,
and has not accepted any corporate PAC money. Eighty six percent (86%) of his contributions come from Oakland County residents.
“The people of Oakland County know me as a fighter for the things that matter like
transit, affordable healthcare and transparency,” said Andy Meisner. “I’m so grateful for
the grassroots support we’ve received and that the overwhelming majority of
contributions are from right here in Oakland County.”
Meisner’s ten years as Oakland County Treasurer have been highlighted by his innovative
solutions to help families save their homes during the Great Recession while also maintaining Oakland County’s AAA bond rating.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve as County Treasurer and appreciate the faith
voters have in me to lead us as our next elected County Executive,” Meisner said.
Citizens from across Oakland County, grassroots community leaders and elected officials have endorsed Meisner’s campaign, including Congressman Dan Kildee, State Senator Jeremy Moss, State Representative Padma Kuppa, Tiffany Tilley from the State Board of Education, former State Senator Vincent Gregory.
Meisner’s lead in the fundraising race is a clear indication that he is the most viable Democrat for the general election.
In addition to the outstanding fundraising numbers, a recent independent poll by Celinda Lake puts Meisner at a significant lead (+14) over his primary opponent in a head-to-head match-up. Meisner’s lead increases to +22 when respondents hear more complete information on both candidates.
