When Allison Tant kicks off her bid for the state House seat in District 9, she’ll have the backing of some of Tallahassee’s most prominent movers and shakers.
Tant, former Florida Democratic Party chair, is having her campaign kickoff 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday at Food Glorious Food, 1950 Thomasville Road. She’s running for the seat in 2020.
More than 200 people, including a few prominent Republicans, are serving as chairs, hosts, co-hosts and “treasured friends” for the fundraiser. Among them are state Rep. Loranne Ausley, who holds the District 9 seat but is running for state Senate in 2020, state Rep. Ramon Alexander and state Sen. Bill Montford, all Democrats.
Past elected officials include former state Rep. and Florida State University President Sandy D’Alemberte, former Secretary of State Sandra Mortham and former City Commissioner Gil Ziffer.
Tickets are $1,000 for chair, $500 for host, $250 for co-host and $100 for friend. Reservations can be made by going to http://bit.ly/CampaignKickoffAllisonTant.
