Jeff Larsen announced Tuesday that several longtime community leaders are hosting a campaign kickoff in his bid for Pinellas County School Board.

Larsen, a teacher and former Tarpon Springs Vice Mayor, is running for the At-Large District 2 seat. The kickoff is Wednesday, May 24, at Wine at the Docks, 828 Dodecanese Boulevard in Tarpon Springs. Event begins at 6:30 p.m.

“I’m humbled by the number of people who’ve pledged their support over the past few months and are eager for me to continue my leadership for our students,” Larsen said in a statement. “This campaign is about preparing our children for a lifetime of success and this event will help me share that message across the county.”

Hosts for the event will include Tarpon Springs Vice Mayor David Banther, City Commissioners Rea Seiber, Susan Miccio-Kikta and Jacob Karr. Greater Tarpon Springs Democratic Club President Gerald Goen and longtime Democratic backer and activist Janet Goen are lending support as well. The committee also includes community leaders Manny Tsesmelis, Pamela Kontodiakos, Dan Jenkin and Dr. Johnny Johnson.

“My experiences as a father, husband, educator, coach, and Vice Mayor have prepared me to serve our families and give our children the best opportunity to succeed,” Larsen said. “I look forward to the months ahead so I can continue meeting with voters and sharing my vision for strong and successful schools throughout Pinellas County.”
