Police Endorse Peters for Pinellas Commission
Kathleen Peters is running for the District 6 seat on the PInellas County Commission.
SOUTH PASADENA – Kathleen Peters, who is running for the District 6 seat on the Pinellas County Commission, has been endorsed by the police union.
“On behalf of our members of the Sun Coast Police Benevolent Association, we appreciate the loyalty, respect and support from Kathleen Peters; one of the many reasons why we are proud to endorse her for County Commissioner District 6,” said LeNard Cox, the group’s senior vice president.
Peters said she was honored by the endorsement.
“The men and women who keep our communities safe have my sincere gratitude—I can’t thank the Sun Coast PBA enough for their endorsement of my candidacy,” Peters said. “To have their support in our race for County Commission District 6 is an incredible honor.”
Peters, a former South Pasadena mayor, is the District 69 representative in the Florida House of Representatives where she serves on the commerce committee, ways and means, government operations and technology appropriations subcommittee, and serves as chair for the energy and utilities committee.
Peters is one of three Republicans running for the District 6 seat on the Pinellas commission. The others are outgoing state Rep. Larry Ahern and civic activist Barb Haselden. The winner of the Aug. 28 primary will face Democrat Amy Kedron in the Nov. 6 general election.
District 6 is a single-member district meaning only those voters who live in it are able to vote for the candidate. District 6 includes northeast St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park, Seminole, and the southern beach communities of Redington Shores, North Redington Beach, Redington Beach, Madeira Beach, Treasure Island, St. Pete Beach and Tierra Verde.
Voters have until July 30 to register to vote or change their party affiliation for the Aug. 28 primary.
