St. Petersburg City Councilman Karl Nurse (District 6) has endorsed Charlie Gerdes in his bid to become Nurse’s next colleague from District 1.

“St. Petersburg’s many challenges demand we send creative problem-solvers to City Hall.  Charlie Gerdes is a bright, hardworking, and community-oriented leader.  I look forward to his energy and ideas,” Nurse said.

Nurse adds his name to a mounting list of key endorsements, including The St. Petersburg Times, Florida House Representative Rick Kriseman (D-53), St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce PAC, Stonewalls PAC, and the West Central Florida Federation of Labor.

Gerdes was proud to receive Nurse’s endorsement: “Karl Nurse exemplifies what a city councilperson should be—compassionate, thoughtful, a good listener. I can’t wait to work alongside him.”
