In its January Report, Mayor Jim Bowlin's campaign for re-election set a new record for a Wildwood Mayoral race.
According to the MEC report, the Bowlin Campaign has over $5,600 cash on hand, with slightly over $11,254 in total receipts for this election so far.

In comparison, former Mayor's Ed Marshall and Tim Woerther raised just over $4,000 during their campaigns.
Since Wildwood has its own campaign rule that sets a limit of $325 per individual, the Mayor noted that the new record reflected broad support for his campaign and accomplishments as Mayor.
"The depth of support from so many residents for the first time in our history is likely the result of listening to all residents and getting things done for them, like the Wilwood 2020 Vision Plan," stated Bowlin. Encouraged by the support, Bowlin also stated that, "It's great to see the level of interest from residents who are new to being involved with our City."
The report also demonstrated an intact and active organization with various expenditures already reported for this election cycle.
So far, no one has declared that they would oppose Bowlin in the 2020 race for Mayor.
