PRESS RELEASE: Hagedorn Focuses on Team Building, Legislative Priorities

Acknowledging a secondary focus on fundraising while the legislature is still in session, state

senator Marv Hagedorn submitted his 2017 financial report, showing $9,900.00 personally loaned to the campaign, and $25,500.00 actively raised.

In the interim, the Hagedorn campaign focused on statewide team and relationship building, developing strategies to increase campaign awareness, and planning fundraising events to occur after the conclusion of the legislative session.  “The people from legislative district 14 elected me and expect my full attention in representing them, not chasing out-of-state donors and dollars.  I fully understand campaigns take money.  Right now, I am immersed in my responsibilities as an Idaho State Senator,” Hagedorn said.

Hagedorn’s campaign focus has been on building relationships, not his campaign bank account. This week Hagedorn announced campaign team leaders and the roles hold within his organization:
