Hillsborough County Clerk of the Circuit Court Pat Frank announced Friday she has received the backing of the Greater Tampa Realtors in her bid for re-election. The group represents 9,000 Tampa Bay area real estate professionals.

Pat Frank has a solid record of serving Hillsborough County residents with integrity and dedication,” said Greater Tampa Realtors President Andy Scaglione. “She has transformed the clerk’s office by using technology to make services more accessible and efficient. This is good for our members, and for the entire community.”
Frank is running for a fourth four-year term to the clerk’s office against Republican Eric Seidel. She handily defeated Kevin Beckner in a bitterly fought primary last month, winning by 18 percentage points.
“I’m so proud to have received the support of the Realtors,” said Frank. “They understand, as an industry, how important it is to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to providing online services that people can access from anywhere. It’s what they’ve been doing in real estate, and it’s what we’re working on every day here at my office.”
On Thursday the Realtors announced their support for Republican Hillsborough County Commissioner Sandy Murman in her race against Democrat Jeff Zampitella.
