Trail Lawyer Runs for Florida Senate
Carrie Pilon is running for Senate District 24, which covers a portion of south and mid-Pinellas County and several beach communities.
ST. PETERSBURG – Trial lawyer Carrie Pilon announced Monday (April 2) that she is running for the District 24 seat in the Florida Senate.
“I’m running because the legislature in Tallahassee is not working for Florida’s families,” Pilon said in a press release. “As a state senator, I’ll invest in our community by ending corporate welfare, fighting for a quality and safe education, affordable healthcare, and by protecting our precious natural resources.”
Pilon is a Pinellas County native, who graduated from Florida State University and the Stetson College of Law. She and her husband, Chad, have a civil trial practice in St. Petersburg. She has worked as a budget analyst and, according to her website, has represented growing businesses and “stood up to corporate giants on behalf of working families during some of the toughest days of their lives.”
She works with the Girl Scouts and PTA and is a volunteer tutor. She and her husband have two children.
Pilon, a Democrat, is running for the SD 24 seat currently held by Jeff Brandes.
SD 24 covers a portion of south and mid-Pinellas County. It includes a portion of St. Petersburg. It also includes Largo, Pinellas Park, Kenneth City, Seminole and the unincorporated Lealman area. It includes the beach communities from St. Pete Beach north to Belleair Beach.
