Nick DiCeglie sets date for re-election campaign kick-off

The reception will be held 6 p.m. June 5 at Island Way Grill in Clearwater.

Freshman state Rep. Nick DiCeglie will hold a fundraising reception for his House District 66 re-election campaign June 5 in Clearwater.

According to the fundraiser invite, the reception will kick off at 6 p.m. at Island Way Grill, 20 Island Way.

The fundraiser features an extensive host committee that includes several Pinellas County politicians such as former state Rep. Larry Ahern, former St. Pete Mayor Rick Baker and state Sen. Jeff Brandes, among others.

Those looking to attend can let the campaign know by calling 407-849-1112 or emailing

DiCeglie just wrapped his first Legislative Session in the House. Among his victories was the passage of HB 5, a bill he sponsored that would change rules governing local referendums to raise taxes.

The Indian Rocks Beach Republican took the first steps toward re-election back in November, shortly after he dispatched Democratic nominee Alex Heeren by 14 points on Election Day.

Through the end of April, he had about $14,000 stashed in his campaign account and another $4,000 or so in his political committee, The Economic Freedom Committee.

He is currently unopposed.

HD 66 is a safe Republican district. It covers part of western Pinellas County, including Clearwater, Belleair, Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores. Prior to DiCeglie’s election, the seat was held by Ahern.

The invitation is below.
