Record Fundraising and Endorsements from Newport Beach Public Safety
Joe Stapleton’s campaign for City Council announced that $240,000 has been raised to date from nearly 500 donors, officially setting Newport Beach’s all-time fundraising record and surpassing Councilman Duffield’s 2014 mark of $217,431.
With six months to go until the November election day, setting the fundraising record is just the latest major announcement from the Stapleton campaign. The campaign also recently announced support from both the Newport Beach Police Officers’ Association and Newport Beach Firefighters’ Association.
“I want to make sure my message of keeping Newport, Newport is heard everywhere,” said Stapleton. “I am so grateful for each and every person who has supported my campaign to help me reach this milestone.”
“Joe Stapleton deserves every bit of credit. I knew it was going to happen eventually, but I can’t believe he smashed it before Summer,” commented Councilman “Duffy” Duffield. “Joe is one of the hardest working candidates I have ever seen. He’s showing that Newport Beach really stands together for the right candidate.”
