Rea Sieber files for Tarpon Commission race
Rea Sieber has filed to run for City Commission.
Head of the Tarpon Springs Merchants Association, Sieber organizes frequent downtown events, such as the Hippie Fest scheduled for August 17. She can usually be found at one of her two businesses on Dodecanese Boulevard: Wine at the Docks and Rea Sunshine, which sells gifts, art and other knick knacks.
Among other volunteer work, Sieber is on the city’s Budget Advisory Committee.
She said she could bring a knowledge of Tarpon Springs’ business community to the commission.
“I know the needs of the business owners and the downtown,” she said. “I believe I could be more help as a commissioner.”
Sieber will run for Seat 2, now held by Commissioner Susan Slattery, who is termed out. Chris Hrabovsky is also in the race, and the election is in March.
