Jono Miller Announces Green Rally in Venice this Wednesday

Sarasota County Commission Candidate Jono Miller has announced he will be holding a "green rally" starting at 5:30 p.m. this Wednesday (August 27th) at Sharky's On The Pier in Venice. Miller will comment on the results of Tuesday’s primary that will determine his Republican opponent, announce a major campaign endorsement, and, weather permitting, take a beach walk with the group.

Billed as a "Green Rally Fundraiser" focused on mid-county voters and environmental supporters, Miller said all supporters are welcome. 

"The focus of this event is to get like-minded people together, talk some about the campaign, and explore and enjoy the north end of one of Sarasota County's greatest beaches. Unlike some fundraising events, there is no minimum suggested donation amount, but people should bring their checkbooks."

Miller chose the date to follow the Tuesday primary elections and kick off the final 70 days of a campaign that started in January. Following the beach walk, supporters have the option of staying for dinner at Sharkys, one of the most popular beach dining locales in the County. It is not known yet if diners will be able to watch the Democratic Convention coverage at Sharkys, but the televised coverage does not start until 8:00 p.m. so there is no conflict for those who want to attend the rally and beach walk.

Supporters will also be able to pick up the distinctive "blue diamond" campaign yard signs at the event. For directions to Sharky's click on this link. For more information about the event call 366-9596.
