Gina Driscoll is seeking the District 6 seat on the St. Petersburg City Council.
ST. PETERSBURG – The Gina Driscoll campaign announced today (Nov. 1) that she has been endorsed by Florida State Sen. Darryl Rouson.
“Gina Driscoll will bring a fresh perspective to the St Petersburg City Council,” Rouson said. “Her work on the Downtown Neighborhood Association has given her a foundation she can bring to the rest of the city to keep all of the city moving forward. On November 7th I will be voting for Gina Driscoll for City Council.”
Driscoll said, “I am humbled by Senator Rouson’s endorsement. Strengthening our neighborhoods will be my primary focus on council because when we have stronger neighborhoods, we have a stronger St. Petersburg.”
Driscoll has also been endorsed by the Pinellas County Democratic Black Caucus, West Central Florida Labor Council, SEIU Public Services Union, County Commissioner Ken Welch, School Board Member Rene Flowers, City Council Chair Darden Rice, City Council Vice Chair Lisa Wheeler-Bowman, Council member Charlie Gerdes, and Council member Karl Nurse.
Driscoll is making her first run at public office. She is seeking the District 6 seat currently held by Nurse, who is terming out of office. She is opposed by Justin Bean, another first-time candidate. The seat is voted on citywide.
Voters are already casting ballots by mail and in early voting, which ends Sunday (Nov. 5). The election is Nov. 7.
