After hosting a recent high-profile Republican reception in Clearwater Beach, Rick Baker’s next event in his bid to return to City Hall will be much closer to home.
The former two-term St. Petersburg Mayor will be holding a fundraiser Wednesday, June 28, at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club in the city’s downtown waterfront. The event, with a suggested contribution of $250, begins at 6 p.m.
Baker, a Republican who served from 2001-2010, is seeking a third term. He faces incumbent Mayor Rick Kriseman.
Among the host committee are St. Pete City Councilmember Ed Montanari, St. Petersburg College trustee Deveron Gibbons, Republican political strategist Matt Lettellier, St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce Chair Greg Holden and developer Blake Thompson.
The St. Pete Yacht Club is at 11 Central Ave. in St. Petersburg. For more information or RSVP, contact Gretchen Picotte at (407) 849-1112 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
