KNOXVILLE – Greg Mackay, candidate for the Tennessee House of Representatives, District 18, received $25,425 in contributions since April, according to his first campaign financial disclosure statement. The report, filed with the State of Tennessee Registry of Election Finance on Monday, showed $8,878.89 in expenditures and cash on hand of $16,546.11.

“I am encouraged and humbled by the level of support this campaign has received. We had 125 contributors, with over 100 supporters donating $100 or less and a great deal of bi-partisan support. It’s clear that the voters of the 18th District are ready to elect someone who can work across the aisle to get things done.”

Mackay, a former Knox County Administrator of Elections, is running to represent district 18, which encompasses much of west and northwest Knoxville. He cites health care, job growth and improving public education as key priorities. For more information on Mackay’s campaign, visit
