Community leaders are planning a fundraiser for Lynn Fitch, Republican candidate for state treasurer, on May 3 at the Grand Magnolia Ballroom in Pascagoula.
The $100 per couple event is being sponsored by Jackie and Francis Grimes, Floore Industrial Services, and Glynn Mallette. It is being hosted by Jimmy Heidelberg, Maxwell-Walker Consulting Group LLC and Marshall and Gean Smith.
In the race for state treasurer, Fitch faces Sen. Lee Yancey, R-Brandon; Lucien Smith, R-Jackson; and on the Democratic ticket, Ocean Springs Mayor Connie Moran. Current state Treasurer Tate Reeves is running for lieutenant governor.
