A fundraiser for Manatee County Commissioner John Chappie's re-election campaign is set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Beach House restaurant in Bradenton Beach.
Chappie, who was first elected in 2008, is so far the only candidate in next year's race for the District 3 seat on the commission. District 3 is comprised of most of west and west-central Bradenton, as well as Anna Maria Island and the Manatee County portion of Longboat Key.
Anna Maria businessmen Ed Chiles -- who owns the Beach House -- and David Teitelbaum are hosting the event; and former county commissioner Pat Glass is listed as the honorary chairwoman.
To ask questions about the event, including how to contribute, contact Chappie at (941) 920-1826 or firstname.lastname@example.org
