González Colón reports over $1 million in her campaign chest
By The Star Staff
Resident Commissioner Jenniffer González Colón reported Tuesday that during the most recent quarter, from July to September, she raised more than $875,000, positioning her with more than $1 million in cash for her gubernatorial election campaign.
The report filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) by the campaign of the New Progressive Party (NPP) vice president, and now gubernatorial candidate, clearly demonstrates that “the campaign is achieving and exceeding the established collection goals,” said Oriol Campos, treasurer of González Colón’s campaign.
“In this way, we will be able to bring to the people the message of a change of vision that Jenniffer has so that public affairs are handled with the urgency that our people demand,” he said.
The sum raised in the most recent quarter was the largest raised by González Colón in a quarter for any of the political offices for which she has been a candidate in the past. The amount raised was added to what already existed in the bank account, exceeding $1 million. In compliance with federal and state rules and regulations, $750,000 was transferred from that federal account to the new gubernatorial campaign account, with additional transfers coming soon.
“Jenniffer is extremely grateful for the strong support she continues to receive from the people. This quarter was an extremely positive one for her campaign, in which a well-attended birthday activity was held,” Campos said. “We invite all the people to join this effort for change and visit our website www.jenniffer.com where they can join the $51 for Puerto Rico campaign or contribute the amount they wish.”
