Los Angeles – Marshall Tuck, public school leader and candidate for California State Superintendent of Public Instruction, announced that he has raised over $2 million, $500,000 more than any other candidate. Tuck’s fundraising comes from about 1,800 donors, over 80% percent of which contributed $1,000 or less. A majority of donors gave less than $500. One-hundred percent of contributions came from individuals.
With over $1.5 million in cash-on-hand, Tuck enters 2018 well positioned to communicate his vision for renewing the promise of public education across the state.
Tuck issued the following statement in reaction to the fundraising results:
“California’s students deserve the very best public schools in the nation, but for too long, our schools have been stuck near the bottom. We can’t afford more of the same. That’s why so many people from across our state are getting behind this campaign, and why we look forward to bringing this message to even more Californians in 2018.”
