Pinellas Commissioners Harris, Welch headline fundraiser

Pinellas County Democrats are making County Commissioners Calvin Harris and Ken Welch the headliners at June 1 fundraiser.

The party is asking for $50 donations to its coffers for the event at Beaks Old Florida Tavern and Restaurant,
2451 Central Ave. in St. Petersburg.

While Welch's involvement isn't a surprise, the inclusion of Harris is another indication he's becoming closer to the party. He stayed away because of differences with past leadership before county party chairman Ramsay McLauchlan met with him, leading to an appearance at the Kennedy King dinner in February.
