CAMPAIGN FINANCE: Dave Robertson Raises $8,500; Spends $11,500 To Date

WILMINGTON, MA — Former Miceli Chief of Staff Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury) was the third of the five Democratic candidates in the 19th Middlesex State Representative race to file his pre-primary (May 7 to August 26) campaign finance report with the Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance.


Dave Robertson’s campaign has raised $8,440 from 82 donors, with an average (mean) donation of $102.93. Notable Wilmington donors (elected or appointed officials) include School Committee member MJ Byrnes, Housing Authority member Stacie Murphy, and Elderly Services Commissioner John Wallace.


Dave Robertson’s campaign has spent $11,444 as of August 26. This amount includes $4,148.70 in campaign expenditures and $10,870.05 in out-of-pocket candidate expenditures for a total expenditure of $15,018.75. Included in the $4,148.70, however, is a repayment to Robertson in the amount of $3,574.95 for out-of-pocket expenditures. As a result, that amount is essentially being counted twice — once as a “campaign expenditure” and once as an “out-of-pocket candidate expenditure.”

Major expenditures include:

  • $4,378.83 to the Wilmington/Tewksbury Town Crier for newspaper advertisements
  • $2,327.40 to Wamesit Lanes for Campaign Kick-Off Event
  • $2,256.75 to Connolly Printing for Lawn Signs
  • $573.75 to Connolly Printing for Dear Friend Cards
  • $532 to Connolly Printing for Invites, Envelopes & Campaign Letterhead
  • $476 to Connolly Printing for Palm Cards
  • $600 to USPS for Stamps
