Thank you for supporting my campaign for Mayor of the City of Wilkes-Barre, PA.

The campaign website is www.briankellyformayor.com. On the site, you may link to my new book, Wilkes-Barre PA: Return to Glory.

As you will see when you visit the campaign donations area, during the campaign, I asked for ten dollars from those who could afford it. I had hoped to attract a lot of people to my campaign for Mayor. I knew that ten dollar gifts would go a long way; you can be assured. My personal thank you for those who helped. Since we still have campaign debts, you may still contribute. Thank you again. 

Thank you to all of you, who in your hearts wanted Wilkes-Barre to be a better city by becoming a safe city, an affordable city, and a clean city. Thank you for supporting this campaign to help make Wilkes-Barre a city that has a lot of promise. Best wishes to Mayor Tony George for his first four year term beginning in January.

The legal notions of campaign giving, as we understand them, (since we are not lawyers) are provided below: Please do not let this stuff frighten you for then, only the friends of the big shots will be able to receive the funding necessary to run their campaigns. God Bless You for helping!

Donation Limits:


We all understand why the government has set donation limits on the amount an individual can contribute to a candidate in one election. In 2015, when the WB City Mayoral Election took place, an individual was permitted to $2700 in the primary and $2700 in the general election. But, no more! {Don't worry, I requested just ten dollars from visitors for my campaign. Thank you}


The limits on contributions to a candidate committee are different from an individual. They apply separately to each election in which the candidate participates. (Primaries, runoffs and general elections are considered separate elections, with separate contribution limits. To avoid making an inadvertent excessive contribution, the Commission strongly encourages contributors to designate their contributions to a candidate by writing the name of the specific election on the check or by attaching a signed statement with the same information.

An undesignated contribution automatically applies to the candidate's upcoming election. For example, an undesignated contribution made after the candidate's primary but before the general election counts against an individual's limit for the general. An undesignated contribution made after the general election counts against the limit for the next election in which the candidate runs for federal office.
If a contributor wants a contribution to count against a particular election other than the candidate's upcoming election, the donor should designate the election on the check or in an accompanying signed note.
