NEW YORK, NEW YORK—Today City Council candidate Kim Moscaritolo submitted her first financial filing for the 2021 race, claiming more than $150,000 in matching funds. Thanks to the city’s generous 8 to 1 matching funds program, Moscaritolo will be eligible for $158,496 in public funds.
Moscaritolo has raised more than any other candidate in the race, and is also the only candidate who has qualified for matching funds. In total, she raised $36,035 from 327 contributions, with an average donation of $110. Of the funds raised, 86 percent came from New York City residents, and 39 percent came from residents of Council District 5, where Moscaritolo is running to replace term-limited Council Member Ben Kallos.
“I’m thrilled that so many members of the community contributed,” said Moscaritolo. “We are building a grassroots campaign focused on the residents of Yorkville, East Harlem and Roosevelt Island, and our strong filing reflects that.”

For more than a decade, she has been a grassroots organizer and has served as Legislative Committee Chair for New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, vice president of Greater NYC for Change, and president of the Manhattan Young Democrats.
