Lesperance Announces Most Successful Fundraising Quarter

Attorney and Democratic candidate for Florida House of Representatives in District 117, Lisa Lesperance today announced her campaign raised more than $16,000 in the October through December reporting period. The total is Lesperance’s most successful to date and brings the campaign total for all reporting periods to more than $47,000.

“I am delighted by the continued strong support for my campaign,” Lesperance said. “I’ve been talking about the need for change in Tallahassee and that’s a message that’s obviously starting to get through.”

The final quarter of any year is traditionally a weak point for any political campaign with time and attention interrupted by holidays. Lesperance’s $16,000 total was raised from more than 100 different contributors.

“Raising money isn’t easy but it’s part of the process,” Lesperance said. “The key is having the resources we need to get our message out this summer.”

District 117 is an open seat currently represented by term-limited Republican Rep. Julio Robaina. Lesperance will face the term-limited Mayor of Palmetto Bay, Eugene Flinn, in the Democratic Primary. Flinn reported raising $2,375 from nine total donors in the same time period.
