Anti-crime advocate Kyle Keyser, who announced his Atlanta mayoral bid on Sept. 2, sends word that he's met his $4,425 fundraising goal.
Since announcing his candidacy on Sept. 2, the 36-year-old video producer and Little Five Points resident asked friends and supporters via Facebook, Twitter and DailyKos to help raise money so he could pay the mandatory qualifying fee to run for office.
Keyser, who acknowledges he's outmatched when it comes to money and experience, will file his official papers at City Hall this afternoon.
"The change the next mayor will have to bring in the next four years is crucial," he told CL this morning. "I'm running to remind [my opponents] of that change. I believe Atlanta can change with the right leadership."
His opponents in the race, thus far, are Lisa Borders, Peter Brownlowe, Mary Norwood, Kasim Reed and Jesse Spikes. Qualifying ends today at 4:30 p.m.
