SMUD Director and Democrat candidate for Congress Bill Slaton announced yesterday that he raised $253,000 during the third quarter ending September 30. Slaton has a total of $398,000 on hand.

I am pleased to receive support from all across California's 3rd Congressional District, as we continue to grow our grassroots campaign. The bottom line: People need jobs," slaton said. " The old Washington ways of thinking will not create new jobs for the future. Now more than ever, we need to redouble our efforts - to preserve the jobs we have, and grow new ones. If we want to change Washington, we need to change the people we send there - to get our economy back on track. With our fundraising success, we will continue to build a grassroots campaign to do just that."

Slaton and Dr. Ami Bara are vying for opportunity to face incumbent Dan Lungren in next year's race for California’s third congressional district. Elk Grove City Council member Gary Davis recently dropped out of the race.

Bera has money edge so far

While Slaton has raised a significant amount of money for his campaign, his opponent for the Democratic nomination, Dr. Ami Bera of Elk Grove, has also proven to be an effective fundraiser. Bera recently reported his campaign has raised $335,000 in the third quarter bringing his total to $585,000.
