Pinellas County GOP chair Nick DiCeglie joins several heavyweight lobbyists in Tallahassee next month to fundraise in support of his bid for term-limited Larry Ahern’s House District 66 seat.
The event begins 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20 at the Governors Club Board Room, 202 S. Adams St. in Tallahassee.
Among those big conservative names on the host committee include former House Speaker Will Weatherford, lobbyist Nick Iarossi of Capitol City Consulting, RSA Consulting Group CEO Ron Pierce, Holland & Knight attorney Mark Delegal, Suskey Consulting head Alan Suskey, Evan Power of the Ramba Consulting Group, GrayRobinson’s Chris Spencer, The Rubin Group and Cameron Yarborough of Gunster, with others.
A 20-year resident of Florida, DiCeglie runs Clearwater-based trash removal and recycling company Solar Sanitation. He faces Berny Jacques in the GOP primary for the western Pinellas County seat, which covers Clearwater, Indian Shores and Largo.
A Democrat, Pinellas educator Alex Heeren, and Reform Party candidate Paul Anthony Bachmann are also in the HD 66 race.
