Brett Smiley, a 2014 Democratic candidate for Mayor of Providence has announced that in the most recent quarter, his second quarter of fundraising, his campaign raised $75,000.

“Since beginning my campaign, I have been consistently inspired by the outpouring of support,” Smiley commented. “Just two weeks ago, I released the details of my plan to reduce crime and violence in Providence and the response was overwhelmingly positive. With the end of another successful quarter, it’s clear that my message of turning progressive values into practical solutions with safer streets, better schools and a more prosperous economy is one that really resonates, and I look forward to building upon this momentum in the new year.”

Smiley now claims to have more than $150,000 in cash on hand, after posting more than $100,000 in fundraising as of September 2013, the end of his first fundraising quarter.
