A trio of local young professionals are holding a fundraiser next week to support Barclay Harless in his bid for St. Petersburg City Council.
The event is Tuesday, Feb. 21 at the Brewer’s Tasting Room, 11270 4th St. N in St. Petersburg. Suggested contribution is $50.
Harless is running for the District 2 seat, which covers most of Northeast St. Petersburg and is now held by term-limited Jim Kennedy.
Hosting the event are attorney Gill Lazenby, banker Mark Stroud Jr., and wealth manager Brooks Wallington. Both Harless and Stroud serve as vice presidents at the Bank of the Ozarks in St. Petersburg.
So far, Harless will face Brandi Gabbard, a former president of the Pinellas Realtor Organization.
Information and donations to Harless’ campaign can be made through voteharless.com.
Primaries for the City of St. Petersburg mayoral race are Aug. 29; general election at-large voting is Nov. 7.
