TAMPA – Mayor Bob Buckhorn has endorses Lee Lowry in the District 4 race for Tampa City Council
Lowry, a Buckhorn appointee to the Citizens Review Board for the Tampa Police Department, has worked with the mayor over the past several years on the issue of human trafficking. Buckhorn endorsed Lowry at the time she filed to run for city council.
“I fully support Lee as she is passionate, capable, and exactly the type of candidate the city council can use. It is also important to have a woman’s voice at the table, and she is the right leader to bring that perspective. I look forward to her success and I encourage others to support her in this endeavor,” Buckhorn said.
Lowry said she was honored to receive Buckhorn’s endorsement.
Lowry also serves on the Florida Statewide Council on Human Trafficking as an appointee of former Gov. Rick Scott, and is immediate past chair of the State Public Affairs Committee of the Junior Leagues of Florida.
Lowry, a long time South Tampa resident with a strong history of public service, serves as the lead fundraiser for the Hillsborough Community College Foundation. Before that, she was the director of development and communications at St. John’s Episcopal Church and Parish Day School, and spent several years as the president, CFO and COO of the Junior League of Tampa.
Lowry said she is looking forward to a robust campaign meeting neighbors across the district and to serving the citizens of the entire city of Tampa. She will work to improve our infrastructure, alleviate traffic congestion, keep our children and families safe while making Tampa’s neighborhoods better places to live, work and play.
Lowry is one of three candidates for the District 4 seat in the nonpartisan election. The other two are Bill Carlson and Salvatore Guagliardo Jr.
The election is March 5.
