Safety Harbor commissioner's funeral is today

Funeral services for City Commissioner Margaret Harkey, who died Friday, will begin at 10 a.m. today at Baty Funeral Home, 737 Main St., Safety Harbor. Mrs. Harkey, 53, collapsed Thursday night after suffering a brain aneurysm. She died the next day at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

She was in the capital for a Florida League of Cities conference.

At the time of her death, Mrs. Harkey was in the middle of campaigning for re-election, with about a month left in her term.

City officials say the commission probably will not choose anyone to serve the rest of her term, and her opponent, Linda Adkins, automatically will be declared the winner of the March 13 election.
