Record-Breaking Fundraising Again!

Our campaign has raised significantly more money than our incumbent opponent for the second consecutive campaign filing period, this time by more than double! We have also once again broken the record for most money raised from contributions by this point in the campaign by any candidate for Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk in the history of San Diego County!

Matt said: “I am so proud of the support our campaign has earned from all across San Diego County. Today’s fundraising reports make it clear that our campaign is the one to beat. Our movement to put the people of San Diego County first will continue working hard to reach every voter and we will never waver in our commitment to bring greater transparency and accountability to the Assessor/Recorder/Clerk’s office. It’s time to make our county government work for all of us.”

We've done well so far but there's still a long road ahead. Join us and contribute to our campaign today!
