No Tax for Tracks to rally at Indian Rocks Beach sushi place



Both sides of the debate over the Greenlight Pinellas transit referendum are gearing up for the last critical days of the campaign before the Nov. 4 vote.

On Thursday, a new group called Women Leaders for Greenlight Pinellas announced a Sept. 9 fundraiser at the Hyatt in Clearwater, and the opposition group No Tax for Tracks blasted out a flyer about its upcoming rally on Sept. 8.

That event is set for 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at IRB Sushi, 416 1st St. in Indian Rocks Beach. There is no admission fee but donations will be accepted, said organizer Betsi Burgess. Capacity at the restaurant is limited to about 80 people. Refreshments will be provided. 

The scheduled speakers are Seminole Vice-mayor Tom Barnhorn (who joined a majority of his council members who last month rejected an endorsement of the Greenlight plan) and Randal O’Toole, a public policy analyst for the Cato Institute who has written a white paper about the Greenlight plan.

If that’s enough of a lure, Nashville country music artist Darryl MacQuarrie will be singing his "signature ballad of 'No Tax for Trax,' " the flyer says.

For more information, call Burgess, (727) 374-7883.
