McCollum trims time for St. Pete fundraiser due to execution



Attorney General Bill McCollum has a fundraiser for his campaign for governor Tuesday afternoon in St. Petersburg as Bankers Insurance Group.

The hosts include Jack Latvala, president and CEO Daryl LeClair of Echelon Development, top executives David Meehan and Bob Menke of Bankers Insurance Group, and Robert Stahl, owner of Stahl Insurance.

The 4:30 event has been reduced by 20 minutes because McCollum "has to leave our office at 5:40 to be available in his local office for the execution that is scheduled for (Tuesday)," Meehan wrote in an email to attendees on Monday.

Martin Edward Grossman is scheduled to executed this evening for the murder of a young wildlife officer in Pinellas 25 years ago.
