South Sarasota Needs New Representation in the State House

Want to join me at a campaign kick-off party for Nancy Feehan, District 70 next week?

Many of my readers both of this blog and from the days of my Reality Chick column with the Pelican Press live in South Sarasota, Venice, Nokomis, and Osprey – Florida State House District 70. The District includes most of the southern half of Sarasota County, from Clark Road and State Road 72 at the north and South Venice and part of Englewood at the south. It extends from Siesta Key and part of Manasota Key on the west to the Myakka River.

Nancy Feehan is running for State House Representative for the District — against Republican Doug Holder. And I’m betting on Feehan to take the race. nancy-feehan

Because my home lies just north of the line for District 70, I can’t actually VOTE for Feehan, but I support her campaign and believe in her as the absolute best candidate for District 70. Against Doug Holder, who has time and time again voted to support near-shore drilling efforts, Feehan’s by far the better choice – especially when it comes to protecting our natural resources. Political reporters like Jeremy Wallace of the Sarasota Herald Tribune are hinting at troubles ahead for Holder — especially after his vote this past week to end the Special Session called by Crist.

Feehan’s having a campaign kick-off party on Wednesday July 28th at Bentley’s Resort Hotel in Osprey — I think it’s just south of Blackburn Point Road, traveling south on 41.

I’m going to go the party — it’s part fundraiser/part meet-the-candidate, I guess, and I want to show my support and wish her well. Maybe I’ll see some of you there!

The kick-off party at Bentley’s runs from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.; suggested contribution of $30, with some horsey durvs on hand, and a cash bar. You can read more about the event and Feehan on Feehan’s campaign website
