Ferrar Fundraiser A Big Success  
I don't know if it was a financial success but lots of folks turned out last night to pack in Ferrar's Gingerville home and show support for the County Councilman. He was introduced by Highland Beach Mayor Ray Langston and Comptroller Peter Franchot. From the looks of the politicos in the crowd, including Dave Cordle, Frank Weathersbee, Fred Paone, Mike Pantelides and many others, the moderate Democrat clearly continues to have bipartisan support. The race, much more exciting now that Chris Trumbauer has entered, will make for a most interesting primary contest. Dems--hold on to your hats!

Mr. Shay will make a formal announcement to launch his campaign at a public event next month.
