BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Ann Romney is set to hold an event at Mizner Park Amphitheater on Saturday.
The event is open to the public. Assistant Boca Raton City Manager Mike Skorka says that Boca is not favoring one candidate over another by permitting use of the City-owned venue by the Romney campaign. It’s simply a matter of dollars and sense.
“The RNC is simply renting the amphitheater just as other non-city groups can,” he told BocaNewsNow.com via email.
Skorka says the RNC is following the same fee structure that any other organization would follow.
The City of Boca Raton website states:
The amphitheater is owned and operated by the City of Boca Raton and can be rented by private or non profit organizations for various functions, including concerts, performances, fundraising events, festivals and private functions. Corporate functions that include entertainment and catered dinners, parties and weddings are also popular in the amphitheater.
In an email sent by the Romney campaign Thursday night, supporters are encouraged to bring “as few personal items as possible” as all be required to walk through “airport style security.”
The event beings at 6:45p. Security screening starts at 4:45p.
The appearance comes one day before Monday’s debate at Lynn University.
