Welch Endorses Driscoll for St. Pete Council
Gina Driscoll is running for the District 6 seat on the St. Petersburg City Council. The race is voted on citywide.
ST. PETERSBURG – Pinellas County Commissioner and Commission Vice Chair Ken Welch today (Oct. 10) announced his endorsement of Gina Driscoll in the District 6 city council race.
“District 6 has a special significance for me because it’s where I grew up, and where my father served three terms on the city council,” Welch said. “It’s so important that the person who represents District 6 is someone we can trust, who will listen to the concerns and priorities of our diverse community, and who will work hard to make real progress for St. Petersburg.”
Driscoll said, “I’m so honored and appreciative of Commissioner Welch’s support in my race. I know that it’s crucial to have positive working relationships not only with my colleagues on city council, but with the county officials so we can move forward on issues like transportation, protecting our environment, and affordable housing.”
Driscoll is running for the District 6 seat held by Karl Nurse, who is terming out of office. Nurse and Council Members Charlie Gerdes and Darden Rice have also endorsed her.
She is facing Justin Bean, another first-time candidate in the Nov. 7 general election. Candidates are running citywide for numbered seats.
