Gotz Refuses Campaign Contributions During Primaries

Points to Outside Money Influencing Local Elections

When I announced that I was running for office a few weeks ago my phone started ringing almost immediately. People were lining up with a phone in one hand and a checkbook in the other.

"This is wonderful. How much do you need?"

I’m so excited that you’re finally running. Where do I send the check?

What’s the maximum I can contribute?

To everyone I said,No thank you. I am not accepting any contributions during the primary.

You see, there is a lot of talk about outside money influencing our local elections, and I believe it to be true.

I want you to know that when you vote for me, you're voting for me and not for any special interest that is paying my way. That when I’m in Tallahassee, I will be representing you, and not any special interests. The only way I can prove that is not to take anyone’s money.

I like when people get to keep more of their own money, and this time is no different.

I will accept your support, your verbal goodwill, your vote. I ask that you spread the word to your friends, family, and co-workers. This campaign will be true grassroots because that’s the way it should be.

If you feel the need to write a check, by all means, select a good and worthy local charity and give from your heart. -Mark
