Candidate endorsed by Clearwater Chamber PAC

Published Oct. 16, 2005

City Commission candidate Lee Savage has won the endorsement of thepolitical action committee affiliated with the Greater Clearwater Chamber of Commerce.

Savage is among five who are seeking the commission seat that will be vacated by Don Winner, who is running for the mayor's seat.

CLEARPAC said Savage's 33-year career with Sears, including stints as manager of the Countryside Mall and Searstown stores, would help him understand the economics of city government.

The committee also gave encouragement to two candidates it did not endorse, Sue Berfield and Jay Keyes, urging both to continue their involvement in local politics. The committee did not mention the two remaining candidates, Frank Mason and Robert E. Wright. Last week the committee endorsed Winner over incumbent Mayor Rita Garvey.
