Ken Welch running for Mayor, err, I mean, Prez. of the Florida Assoc. of Counties

My favorite guy in town, Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch, has sent a letter to Christoper Holley, executive director of the Florida Association of Counties, indicating he intends to run for 2nd Vice President of the FAC, which, if were to win, would put Welch in line to be president of the organization in 2014.

Of course, I am still holding out hope that Ken re-considers all of this and one day runs for Mayor of St. Petersburg.
