Ken Peluso, who’s running for re-election to the District 4 seat on the Pinellas School Board, has collected enough signatures to qualify for the race.
“That just shows that I have widespread support and a great campaign team,” Peluso said.
Two other candidates have announced they are running for Peluso’s seat, Chris Hardman and Eileen Long. A third opponent, Anthony Maccaroni, has withdrawn from the race, according to records from the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections office.
Peluso was elected to the School Board in 2014. He has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Merrimack College in Massachusetts and a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine from Sherman College in South Carolina. In 2013, Peluso retired as president/owner of Peluso Chiropractic Center in Palm Harbor after 28 years in practice.
Peluso currently resides in Palm Harbor with his wife where he was named Palm Harbor Citizen of the Year and Palm Harbor’s honorary mayor. He has two children and two grandchildren.
District 4 is a single-member district that covers the northernmost section of Pinellas County, including Tarpon Springs, Palm Harbor and the East Lake area. The election is Aug. 30.
