“ELKTON — First-time candidate Al Miller isn’t looking like a political novice, bringing in a staggering $32,399 during his Republican primary campaign for Cecil County Council District 3, according to the latest round of campaign finance reports.
Miller’s haul through June 15 is greater than even County Executive Alan McCarthy’s 2016 campaign, which raised around $25,000 through the general election. So far, Miller has spent more than $21,500 on yard signs, billboards, website design, newspaper ads, fundraisers and giveaway items, along with other items.
“This has been the most humbling thing that has ever happened to me in my life,” Miller said Tuesday, thanking his father, fiancee and friend Richard Hall for helping organize his campaign. “If you had told me that we could raise this kind of money, I would have said you were crazy.”
What makes Miller’s fundraising even more impressive for a council race is its large diversity of primarily in-county donors, as well as its lack of four-figure donations — Miller has only three: Rising Sun farmer Jesse McMillan who has donated $1,750, North East lawyer Peter Kirsh who’s donated $1,350, and $2,000 from the Republican Club of Cecil County, which endorsed Miller earlier this year. The vast majority of Miller’s donations range from $100 to $300.”
