Ward 6 candidate Mike Bloxam exceeds fundraising target
London business owner Mike Bloxam, the frontrunner in the race for the Ward 6 council seat, has established his early start by raising more than the campaign’s $2000 fundraising target well ahead of its March 31 deadline.
Bloxam thanked supporters on Tuesday for helping him surpass the goal before his campaign officially kicks off with a launch party this weekend.
“I want to express sincere thanks to all those who have supported me so far. I greatly appreciate the encouragement and advice I’ve received already, and look forward to the campaign ahead.”
In addition, he will gather with supporters at 2:00 this Sunday, March 30 at the Alibi Roadhouse to officially start the campaign. More than 50 people are registered to attend, and the event is open with registration required via the campaign Web site at www.bloxam.ca. Bloxam plans to step up canvassing efforts following Sunday’s event to listen to more of Ward 6 residents’ vision for our city.
“I’m running because I believe strongly that living in a community means giving back: it is a belief and practice that I will continue through civic duty. I plan to share that belief with Ward 6 residents, and to speak with them about the things they value in our shared community.”
In the meantime, he has set a new campaign fundraising target of $5000 by May 31.
