The campaign for A. Shirley Murphy for Anne Arundel County Council is holding a raffle Friday with a top prize of $300.
Ms. Murphy is a candidate for the 3rd District seat now held by council Vice Chairman Carl "Dutch" Holland. The Pasadena businesswoman said she was asked by conservative Democrats to challenge the Republican incumbent.
Mr. Holland unseated Democrat Edward "Buddy" Ahern in 1990.
Ms. Murphy is one of two Democrats who have announced their plans to compete in the September 1994 primary.
Tom Redmond, who owns a towing and used auto parts business, also is running.
