Sohi first candidate to share donor list, at least $400K raised so far
One of the frontrunners to become the next mayor of Edmonton has released his donors list - including 1,200 contributors and at least $400,000 raised.
Amarjeet Sohi tweeted the list Friday afternoon.
He did not disclose exact amounts, rather donation levels with a range of cash collected.
Forty people contributed between $2,999 and $5,000, for example.
The inexact accounting means Sohi raised anywhere between $400,000 and $1 million - with 10 days to go before election day.
“This grassroots support is incredible. With your help, team Sohi, I know that we will build an Edmonton for all of us,” he wrote on Twitter.
He added he'll released a final list on Oct. 17.
Outgoing mayor Don Iveson raised $618,000 in 2013 and $396,000 in 2017, according to publicly-filed disclosures.

A spokesperson for candidate Cheryll Watson said she'd release her donor list the day before the election.
