Rickey Peete Raises $75,000

Posted on Fri, Mar 31, 2006 at 4:00 AM

City Councilman Rickey Peete raised upwards of $75,000 at a fund-raiser on Beale Street this week but says he isn’t planning on running for anything besides City Council. Peete, head of the Beale Street Merchants Association, welcomed hundreds of supporters to a $250-per-person party at Alfred’s. “You run like you’re scared,” said Peete, who represents one of the superdistricts which stretches from Frayser to the Mississipppi state line to Hickory Hill and includes 128 precincts. The election is in 2007 and at this early date Peete has no opponents. The district includes such hot growth areas as Uptown and South End as well as FedExForum and Beale Street.
