The Williamson County Election Commission does not publish and freely disclose school board candidate campaign finance reports. However, The Tennessean published a news article on July 16, 2014, which contained a limited amount of financial information after the second campaign finance filing deadline. According to that report, Burgos raised $5,400 in contributions.[1]


Burgos received an endorsement from Chris Carter, who ran as a Republican candidate for the 5th Congressional District seat in the United States House of Representatives in 2014.[2]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[6]
