In less than 30 days, Richard Skorman has raised $21,000 from 92 donors, not including a $5,000 loan from the candidate.

Two donors, Kat Tudor and Tim Remington, gave $2,500, and four others made $1,000 contributions.

The remainder came from 86 individual donors, who gave amounts from $25 to $500. The average gift from all donors was $228.

Eighty-five percent of the donors are Colorado Springs residents.

Contributors include veteran commercial real estate broker Doug Carter, development consultant Les Gruen, and real estate magnate Buck Blessing, who also contributed to Steve Bach’s campaign.

Skorman’s formal campaign kickoff will take place today at 5 p.m. in the Carnegie room at the Penrose library.
