Kelly Smith is running for the District 2 seat on the Pasco County Commission.

PASCO COUNTY – Kelly Smith is kicking off her campaign for the Pasco County Commission with a Feb. 13 fundraising event.

The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Brunchies Lutz, 24400 State Road 54 in Lutz. The event is billed as having friends, laughs and waffles.

Smith, a Democrat who lives in Wesley Chapel, is an operations coordinator with an international engineering firm in Tampa. She is also a special education advocate.  She said she is running because the current makeup of the Pasco commission lacks a diversity of ideas and experiences.

She is running against Republican incumbent Mike Moore for the District 2 seat on the board. The election is Nov. 6.

The commission is the legislative and policymaking body of Pasco County government. The five members of the Board are elected Countywide from all districts. The commission appoints the county administrator and the county attorney and confirms the appointment of department heads. The board sets policy and makes all budget decisions with regard to appropriation of funds to county departments, divisions and some Constitutional officers.

Meetings are usually held every other Tuesday, either at the West Pasco Government Center in New Port Richey or at the Historic Pasco County Courthouse in Dade City. All meetings are streamed online and broadcast live on the county’s 24-hour television station.
