Scott Willis, who officially filed an Exploratory Committee for Westfield Mayor in October of 2021, has reported $126,677 in contributions in 2021 and $125,814 cash on hand.

Willis’ total raised is a record for amount raised in a non-election year for Westfield Mayor and sets him up as a front-runner in the 2023 Republican primary. Willis set a record in Westfield for most money raised in a non-election year.

“As I continue to explore running for Westfield Mayor, I’m having meaningful discussions with residents, community groups, and business owners in Westfield about our city’s future. I’ve been honored to receive a tremendous amount of encouragement and support. Not only is that reflected in the financial contributions received, but also in the growing team of grassroots supporters volunteering for my campaign,” said Willis.

During Willis’ first term as a Westfield City Councilor, he has brought a unique voice and perspective to the council as a 17-year Westfield resident, decorated U.S. Marine, and successful businessman. Willis, and his wife Stacey, have three children — Sophia, a freshman at Xavier University, and Brenna and Graden, both Westfield Schools students.
