Romney rally at Land O'Lakes High cost campaign $34,000



LAND O'LAKES — Pasco County school district officials didn't know what might happen when they agreed to allow Mitt Romney to rally at the Land O'Lakes High School football field a week ago.

The district had never hosted such a large event before.

Now 15,000 attendees and more than $25,000 in damages later, they plan to closely review their policies and procedures for future big draw activities. The district treated the rally as a simple facilities rental request.

"I'm sure it's something the administration and School Board will discuss in the future," said board member Cynthia Armstrong, who's expected to become chairwoman on Nov. 20.
