Wilson endorsed by public safety group
Pasco County Commissioner Henry Wilson’s re-election campaign has received the endorsement of Pasco County Public Safety. That’s a group that includes the West Central Florida Chapter of the Police Benevolent Association, the Fraternal Order of Police Pasco County Sheriff’s Lodge No. 29, and the International Association of Firefighters Pasco County Local 4420.
Wilson also received the endorsement of the West Florida Women’s Conservative Republican Network.
Wilson is looking to return to his District 4 seat, but has a primary challenge by fellow Republican Mike Wells Jr., in August.
Wilson raised $200 for his campaign in April, bringing his total to $19,245. Wells, in his first month of campaigning, raised $20,700.
If no Democrat enters the race, Wells and Wilson will battle it out in an open primary Aug. 26.
Commission candidates to debate
The Conservative Club of East Pasco will host a debate between District 2 Pasco County Commission candidates Ken Littlefield and Bob Robertson June 16 at 6:30 p.m.
The two are racing against Mike Moore for the Republican nomination for the seat. Moore is not attending because he’ll be out of town, according to club secretary Nils Lenz.
The event will take place at the Zephyrhills Woman’s Club, 38549 Fifth Ave., in Zephyrhills. It will include introduction of new city leaders including Mayor Gene Whitfield, Councilman Alan Knight, and interim city manager Steve Spina.
For information, call Lenz at (813) 782-9491, or email him at .
Mike Wells fundraiser, endorsement
Mike Wells Jr., who is seeking the District 4 Pasco County Commission seat currently held by Henry Wilson, is holding a fundraiser June 17 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the home of Steve and Lynn Hickman, 37402 Church Ave., in Dade City.
As expected, Wells also received official public support from his father, Pasco County property appraiser Mike Wells Sr., who is encouraging supporters to either attend the June 17 fundraiser, or make contributions to him for his son’s campaign.
