In fact, he raised $10,113 and reported having $18,056 on hand. During that same period, Zimmerman raised $6,535 with $9,073 on hand. A third Green Party candidate, J. Kevin Chisholm, raised $395 with $24 ready to spend.
Zimmerman, who has been a board member since 1996, still leads in overall fundraising with $26,284 raised this election cycle. Kelly has raised almost $22,500 for his campaign and Chisholm has raised a total of $695.
Residents within the 22207 Zip Code have contributed 27 percent of the funding for all three candidates, according to Virginia Public Access Project statistics.
