Torsella Raises $1 Million for Treasurer Bid
This week he revealed that he was able to raise $1,017,000 from April to December 2014.
Out of that total, Torsella currently has $995,242 cash on hand.
“My career has focused on making public institutions work better and more efficiently,” Torsella stated. “I’m running for State Treasurer because it’s a job that has a significant impact on the lives of Pennsylvanians – making higher education more affordable for the middle class through the 529 college savings program, building the economic security of families and seniors, and protecting the investments of our citizens. The response so far from early supporters has been terrific, but we’re just getting started.”
The former U.S. Representative to the United Nations for Management and Reform also announced he has filed the papers to create a political committee.
Torsella’s interest in the Treasurer position was highlighted last December when it was revealed Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen was holding a fundraiser for him.
