KANSAS CITY, MO - Kevin Corlew announced this week that, as of September 30, the end of the third quarter, he had raised over $48,000 in his campaign for 14th District State Representative. In September, he raised $16,224 from 54 different sources. Candidate committees filed their third-quarter reports with the Missouri Ethics Commission on October 15.

Corlew now has received more in cash contributions than his opponent has in each of the past four reporting periods and for the second consecutive overall quarter. The published disclosure reports show that Corlew’s opponent has received more than one-third of her support from large in-kind donations from a single source—her own environmental business. In contrast, contributions to Corlew’s campaign have come from more than 200 individual and groups.

“The broad-based support my campaign has received sends a clear message,” Corlew said. “People want a candidate who will put special-interest-dominated and partisan politics aside and instead work for the people as a champion for fiscal responsibility, economic growth and jobs, education, and improved essential services here in the Northland.” He says that many people have continued to support the campaign in October, and he expects another strong showing on the next committee report.

Corlew, a long-time Northland leader and community volunteer, resides in Kansas City with his wife and three children. He has served on the Board of Education for North Kansas City Schools, as well as in leadership positions for his homeowners association and church and civic groups.
