Mallott raises $233K for gubernatorial campaign

Posted: February 14, 2014 - 1:07am

Democratic-gubernatorial hopeful Byron Mallott has raised more than $233,000 since announcing his intention to run for governor last October.

The reporting period ran from October 2013 through Feb. 1, 2014, and Mallott’s $233,427 came from about 1,100 individual donations.

“I’m inspired by this strong show of support from Alaskans of all walks of life who believe it’s time for new leadership on education, the budget, health care and a host of other issues,” Mallott said in a press release. “We’re going to run a spirited campaign that unites Alaskans around common values and common sense, and we’re off to a great start.”

In 2010, Republican Gov. Sean Parnell raised about $215,000 during the same span, according to the press release from the Mallott campaign.

Parnell announced Wednesday more than $400,000 has been donated to his campaign from April 25, 2013, through January of this year.

Hope everyone remembers that

Mallott is a former mayor of Juneau and was in office less than 6 months before he quit. Is this new campaign just a way of stirring the pot and dividing the State (again)? If he can't handle being Mayor of a small town like Juneau, can we possibly trust him with running the State? Don't think so!!

If we like...

If we like our current governor can we keep our current governor? Sorry Mr. Mallot but the Demos are running this country into the ground with no signs of stopping. Fiscal responsibility is the word and the Demos love to spend money that isn't theirs.

Is He the "Anyone but Parnell" choice?
Unpublished

Wondering if I'll end up voting for Mallott, just because he would be the best "anyone but Parnell" choice. Since our current governor has given our money and future to the biggest profiting corporations in the world and loves to play political games, I KNOW Parnell is not getting my vote.

@James Coleman - You state that "Fiscal responsibility is the word and the Demos love to spend money that isn't theirs." With that statement, you must also not like our current Republican governor. Giving away $2 billion a year is the EXACT OPPOSITE of fiscal responsibility, and I'm sure the oil companies (and their shareholders) will love spending money that shouldn't be theirs, in the first place.

Yup, my vote will be "anyone but Parnell", just don't know yet who that anyone will be.

Fact...

...is that Steven is obviously not paying attention to the budget and revenue discussions in the Legislature. Otherwise, he would know that Alaska worse off financially now than it has been years, possibly decades.
