Bunting gets support from Pasco Commissioner



Pasco GOP Chairman Bill Bunting has the support of County Commissioner Jack Mariano, meaning insurgent Republicans seeking to kick out Bunting from leadership will have to look elsewhere for support.

Mariano, a Republican who lives in Bunting's precinct, told Bay Buzz today he will vote to re-elect Bunting as precinct committeeman in the Aug. 26 primary.

The committee members make up the county party's executive committee, and Bunting has to keep his post to be eligible to be chairman. Critics of Bunting are running against him for the job, hoping to oust Bunting from power by beating him in his own neighborhood.
