Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance hosts a bipartisan fundraiser to fight Amendment 4

The local opposition to Amendment 4 -- the "Hometown Democracy" measure on the Nov. 2 ballot -- are gearing up for the final month of the campaign with a fundraiser next week in Lakewood Ranch.

Here's the press release:
Politicians from both parties are scheduled to speak out against Amendment 4 at a Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance fundraiser on Thursday, October 7th at the Concession. Expected speakers at the event include Representative Keith Fitzgerald, Senator Mike Bennett, and Representative Ron Reagan.

“Defeating Amendment 4 is critical to everyone in the state of Florida,” said Craig Cerreta, chairman of the LWRBA governmental affairs committee. “Leaders from both political parties agree that the passage of this amendment would cripple Florida’s economy and cost thousands of jobs. It will be like hanging up a sign on the state of Florida that says ‘DO NOT DO BUSINESS HERE.’ We are having this fundraiser to show solidarity across party lines to defeat this amendment and to help raise awareness about how detrimental it could be to our state.”

The fundraiser will be from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the Concession Clubhouse, located at7700 Lindrick Lane Bradenton, 34202, and will include wine tastings and hor d’oevres by Sean Murphy. There is a $50 minimum contribution at the door and sponsor recognition with a $100 contribution. Anyone interested in attending should register at

  1. I cant wait to vote for this amendment. It is about time. Let's see, maybe us taxpayers who get to support all the unneeded infrastructure that the developers laugh all the way to the bank developing get a say now. The over development by greedy developers has been a scourge on our state.

    Dont do business in Fl. Please, that's just BS
