Jamgochian Campaign Raises Over $23,000 at December Fundraiser
Formidable Sign of Strength Ahead of Finance Deadline
Bethesda, MD – District 16 Delegate candidate Hrant Jamgochian raised $23,085 at a block-buster end-of-year fundraiser yesterday, at an event hosted by US President of United Way Worldwide Stacey Stewart. This fundraiser comes just one month before the first fundraising deadline, and is a sign of the daunting climb any potential challengers would face if entering the race.
Jamgochian brings twenty years of public policy experience and currently serves as the Executive Director for Dialysis Patient Citizens, a national patient advocacy organization that works to improve the quality of life for kidney disease patients. He previously worked at United Way Worldwide as the Director of Health Policy, where served as the lead expert on state and federal health policy issues. On the campaign trail, Jamgochian frequently cites his tenure and leadership at United Way Worldwide as informative to the legislative goals he hopes to accomplish as a Delegate.
Jamgochian’s aggressively early start includes a June fundraiser that also broke the $20,000 mark, a full time Campaign Manager who has been on the ground for seven months and a team of national consultants assembled in early 2013. In what was expected to be a crowded and hotly contested primary field, Jamgochian’s early start, strong fundraising efforts, consolidation of local endorsements and extensive professional experience have been described by local activists as playing a critical role in giving his campaign an edge.
