Baker Campaign Committee Raises Over $200,000

The Friends of Rushern L. Baker received $206, 585 in contributions between January 10, 2008 and January 14, 2009. The campaign raised these dollars despite the downturn in the economy and the intense local focus on the 2008 Presidential Election.   The Baker campaign eliminated the majority of its debts, except obligations pending negotiations, and remains prepared for an aggressive run for the office of County Executive in 2010.

"We welcome the show of confidence in our campaign from around the county," said Baker, "the willingness of people and businesses to support positive change where they live and work through their financial contributions keeps me humble."  Baker continued, "While the dollars matter, it will be our ideas and the ability to run a campaign that speaks to what people need right now, that will make the difference in 2010."

The Baker Campaign plans to multiply its fundraising and outreach efforts for 2009, while also introducing some innovative approaches to interactive campaigning.   "I'm running for the office not against anybody.  I will not expect the pace of our fundraising to matter on Election Day in 2010. Instead, connecting with the people of Prince Georges County by offering clear, practical solutions to the problems we face will drive our efforts.  Having dollars, large and small will help the campaign help people know how, together, we can become a County of the highest rank." said Baker when asked what the fundraising pace means for his upcoming County Executive bid.

Baker will be available today from 3 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. to comment on this press release. Join him on a conference chat at (877)643-6951 and enter the access code 64218667#.
