Burgess raised $75,000 in December for mayoral run

Seattle City Council member Tim Burgess says he has more than $80,000 in hand after two months of raising money for his mayoral run. Burgess sent out his latest fundraising numbers this afternoon as Mayor Mike McGinn prepares to announce he’s running for re-election.

Burgess will report he raised $75,000 in December, bringing his total to more than $100,000. Burgess announced at the end of November he would run for mayor. He’s not the only candidate with financial momentum. State Senator Ed Murray, who can’t raise money while the Legislature is in session but raised $100,000 in less than two weeks before the session started. Former City Council member Peter Steinbrueck hasn’t reported his first fundraising totals. Neighborhood activist Kate Martin and Realtor Charlie Staadecker are in the race, as well.

McGinn hasn’t filed his fundraising reports for December.
