Peters Qualifies in Pinellas Commission Race
Kathleen Peters is running for the District 6 seat on the Pinellas County Commission.
ST. PETERSBURG – Kathleen Peters on Friday (April 27) earned a spot on the ballot for the Pinellas County Commission in District 6, qualifying by the petition method.
To be placed on the ballot for District 6, a candidate must either pay a qualifying fee or collect 1,690 signed petitions by voters in the district. The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections verified 1,802 petitions from Peters, exceeding the required quota by 112 signatures.
“I am truly humbled by the outpouring of support from the voters of District 6,” Peters said. “The feedback our team has received from door knocking and speaking directly to residents is loud and clear—we need to prioritize Pinellas over politics, and common-sense policies will prevail.”
Peters, who is serving her final term in the Florida House of Representatives, has vowed to protect Pinellas beaches and waters, enhance emergency management, continue to develop a coordinated system of care for mental health, and ensure that Pinellas County prioritizes job creation with its business-friendly climate.
District 6, currently represented by retiring Commissioner John Morroni, covers northeast St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park, Seminole and the barrier island beaches from Redington Shores to Tierra Verde.
Peters, a Republican, is one of three candidates who have announced a run for the seat. The other two are Republicans Larry Ahern, a state representative, and Barb Haselden, a community activist.
The primary is Aug. 28. The general election is Nov. 6.
