PALM HARBOR – The race is on again for honorary mayor in Palm Harbor. An unofficial town, Palm Harbor doesn’t have a mayor. So instead, the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce creates a race each year to elect an honorary member who rides in the holiday parade and attends chamber ribbon cuttings.
This year, three candidates will fight it out for the title:
• Frank Nabozny of Green Tech Termite and Pest Control, Inc. Nabozny will raise money for the Suncoast Hospice Foundation.
• Nancy Jean-Baptiste of The Learning Experience. Jean-Baptiste will raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation and CSA Palm Harbor’s Annual Free Boat Fishing Day for Kids.
• Jessica Cleveland of Spectra Cleaning Solutions, LLC. Cleveland will raise money for The Beth Dillinger Foundation Nourish to Flourish Program.
Votes are collected as contributions to a candidate, with $1 equaling one vote. A contributor can vote as many times as he or she wants; 50 percent of the proceeds go to the charities and the other half helps fund Chamber events throughout the year. Donations/votes can be made directly to the candidate, online on a computer (not mobile) at www.palmharborcc.org or by check or cash at the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce office, 1151 Nebraska Ave.
Voting closes at noon the day before the annual Chamber dinner in October; the specific date has not yet been announced.
