REGGIE OLDAK REACHES THRESHOLD FOR PUBLIC FINANCING
FOR RELEASE: July 6, 2017
Reggie Oldak, Democrat for County Council District 1, announces that she is the first non-incumbent to reach the threshold to qualify to receive matching funds under the new Montgomery County public financing program, after her official campaign kick-off was held less than two weeks ago.
“Special thanks go to the more than 125 residents who have donated over $10,000 since I announced my candidacy. I opted for public financing because I believe that an elected official must represent her constituents and the public, not private interests. I’m not sitting on the sidelines, and neither should you. Join me!”
Reggie will not accept corporate, union, or PAC contributions, and individuals are limited to a maximum contribution of $150 under public financing rules. Under the new system, Montgomery County matches individual contributions in varying amounts, up to a maximum of $125,000 for a district council race.
