East Bay, CA—Candidate for State Senate Steve Glazer announced today that his campaign has raised $179,000 in twenty eight days from 230 donors.

Glazer has raised a total of $213,000 to date for his Senate bid.

“It means a great deal to me to have the support of so many donors,” said Glazer.  “Raising this much money in twenty eight days makes it clear that I have broad support for my District 7 Senate race.”

Glazer has received bi-partisan endorsements from almost fifty local elected officials including retired Contra Costa County Sheriff Dick Rainey, former San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed, retired State Controller Steve Westly, former state Treasurer Kathleen Brown and the Contra Costa Times. 

Former state Treasurer Kathleen Brown said of Glazer:  “Steve believes, as I do, that in order for government to deliver important services it must have its financial house in order.  Steve supports sensible pension reform so funds will be there for the newly hired teacher, police officer, firefighter and nurse when they retire. He supports strong accountability measures throughout all levels of government.” 

Glazer currently serves as the Mayor of Orinda and a Trustee of the California State University 23-campus system. During his tenure on the Orinda City Council, Glazer has helped balance budgets while making improvements to schools, libraries and roads.
