Former City Councilman and State Representative Rick Kriseman raised over $58,000 in the second fundraising quarter of the mayoral election. This brings his total to over $109,000 since entering the race in February of this year. 

“Once again, I am humbled that the people of St. Petersburg have chosen to invest in my vision to move this city forward,” said Kriseman. 

Kriseman raised $58,213 from 287 donors. Individual contributions ranged from $5 to the maximum of $500. 

“Our last fundraising quarter speaks to the momentum that our campaign to provide good quality jobs, improve our schools, and strengthen our neighborhoods is gaining,” said Kriseman.

Kriseman outraised Mayor Bill Foster more than two-to-one in the first fundraising quarter of the year. Foster has not posted his finance report.
