Dear Alderman Zielinski,
Congratulations on your upcoming bid for Lieutenant Governor, the second highest elected office in the state of Wisconsin. As someone who has worked on campaigns, I know the demands and struggles it
imposes on the candidate.
I read your press release with interest, and noted the paragraph which discusses your fundraising efforts:
“Under state law Zielinski can transfer the balance –approximately $50,000 — of his current campaign account to his Lieutenant Governor campaign committee. This is in addition to the $10,000 he raised for the Lieutenant Governor’s race in the first day.”
Congratulations on having such a robust warchest. However, I’m curious as to the origin of this $10,000 raised in the first day. Did this money come from area residents, or from local businesses? Was it from in-state political group, or an out-of-state political group? Or something else entirely?
I look forward to your response.
