Dollars & Donors: The 2018 Civic Election in Abbotsford

Throughout my campaign for a second term as your mayor in Abbotsford, I promised to be open about my campaign expenses and the contributions I received. In advance of the filing deadline (January 19, 2019) below are totals of the money in and out. Once the official filings (of all candidates) are live, I’ll provide a link that will make it easy for you to see all.

Total Campaign Contributions

Total Campaign Expenses 

My campaign expense limit, prescribed by the Province of BC, was $86,556.10. I’m happy to say we remained $28,962.21 under the allowable limit. The surplus amount ($11,267.46) can be held and used for a 2022 re-election campaign.

*This figure includes $2,887.36, the value for re-used signs purchased during 2014’s mayoral campaign.Even though this is not an actual cash expense in 2018, it must be reported as though the used signs were purchased new and must be included as an expense.
