Alex Sink opens third campaign office in Dunedin

Alex Sink can extend her reach to more Pinellas County residents, now that she opened up a third campaign office this afternoon, this time in Dunedin.

Sink’s new office, off Main Street in downtown Dunedin, joins two other campaign centers, one in Seminole and another in the Feather Sound neighborhood of Clearwater.

“Everywhere I go Pinellas residents tell me that they are sick of the dysfunction in Congress holding us back from tackling the problems that matter most,” Sink said in a prepared statement. “From stopping flood insurance rate spikes, to protecting seniors and veterans, to helping businesses grow jobs, our challenges are too important to let partisan politics stand in the way of solutions.”

“Our third office will help us connect with even more Pinellas residents and share our campaign’s message: it’s time to bring the bipartisan, results oriented values I practiced as CFO and a business leader to Washington.” 

Sink, former Democratic Florida CFO and 2010 gubernatorial candidate, faces Republican David Jolly and Libertarian Lucas Overby in an increasingly contentious race for Florida’s Congressional District 13

The special election is March 11.

In a recent St. Pete Polls survey about 47 percent of participants said they favored Jolly while about 43 support Sink. More than four percent favored Libertarian Lucas Overby, and six percent said they were undecided.
