Shenise Turner-Sloss is running for the Dayton City Commission. This is her third time running after finishing 4th in 2017 and 3rd in 2019. In the 2021 primary she finished in 1st place and appears to have built up a strong grassroots coalition.
Items of note:
- This is what a grassroots campaign looks like. The average donation is just shy of $100 with at median of $50. Of the 149 donors, 113 came from the City of Dayton proper. 7 don’t have an address listed (at fundraisers some small-dollar donations can be anonymous). 7 are from out of state. With a maximum donation of $1,000 and a minimum donation of $10, this is a campaign built upon many small contributions.
- On the expenditures page, we have many of the same problems that plagued Mims’ report. This appears to be a pattern among candidates and it indicates that this is just the way things are done. We need stronger campaign finance laws to require candidates to be thorough when filling out their expenditure reports. Like with the Mims report, nothing appears shady, but allowing this type of accounting is what allows the P.J. Sittenfelds of the world stealthily shift money around.
- Turner-Sloss 2019 Pre-Primary Campaign contributions totaled a bit over $7,000. In this cycle (01/01/21–04/19/21), she has raised twice that amount. Momentum appears to be on her side.
