St. Petersburg City Council Chair Darden Rice announced today that over one hundred of her supporters had contributed $23,020 during the first 16 days of her re-election campaign.

Rice announced her campaign for re-election on February 13, leaving just two weeks to raise money before the first finance deadline.

“I’m thankful for the outpouring of support for my reelection campaign,” said Rice. “We’ve made great progress together in the past three years in St. Pete. Our city and our neighborhoods are stronger because we’ve worked together. I want to continue that progress.”

During her time on City Council, Rice has been an advocate for numerous causes and community issues including improving transportation, making local government more efficient and transparent, fighting for a cleaner environment, and promoting policies inclusive of all St. Petersburg residents.
