ST. PETERSBURG – Gina Driscoll, a St. Petersburg City Council member, is one of eight local officials from across Florida who Wednesday (June 20) endorsed Philip Levine for governor.
“What our community needs is a partner in the Governor’s Office who will bring us into the conversation on issues like education, gun safety, and affordable housing,” Driscoll said. “As governor, Philip Levine will work with us directly on local issues – he cares about community input and understands that it’s crucial to solving the challenges we face throughout the state.”
Driscoll joined seven other municipal officials from across the state – the mayors of Miami Beach, Miami Gardens and Kissimmee, the vice mayor of Miramar, commissioners from Deerfield Beach and Port of Palm Beach, and a Madison County School Boad member.
“I’m proud to have the support of local leaders from across Florida who understand how important this election cycle is—as a former mayor, I know the importance of local government firsthand and I will be a partner to communities throughout Florida as we work together to tackle the issues facing our state,” Levine said. “My administration will fight to roll back preemption and allow locals to set rules that work for their communities—it’s time to bring the government back to the people.”
