You're correct. Meadows has raised/self donated equal amounts of funds. However she has "on the job," experience and while not all like her, or support her she has a strong advantage here and one that would command high donations. Comparatively speaking he's raised as much if not more money than all the other districts combined. Some of the other candidates have managerial experience as well, both in business and or public service. While his business background is not as impressive as some, it does make some wonder how his contributions are so disproportionate to others like Imfeld or Chapman. But, maybe this is the year change as some are speculating. We shall see.
