Is this going to be one of the new trends this election season, in which organizations explain their endorsements? Sierra Club explained why it endorsed Scott Wagman for St. Petersburg Mayor; now the Pinellas Realtors are explaining (albeit with several spelling errors I had to correct) the endorsement they made last week in the City Council races:
District 2: James Kennedy – Kennedy earned the committee’s recommendation because of his commitment to growth management planning as well as his overall knowledge of issues facing the community.
Distinct 4: Leslie Curran – The committee was very impressed with Curran’s commitment to community redevelopment, quality of life issues and her community service.
District 5: Angela Rouson – The committee decided to recommend Rouson because of her long history in the community and because of her commitment to affordable housing.
District 6: Karl Nurse – The committee chose to recommend Nurse because of his commitment to the environment and green housing initiatives. Nurse is also deeply committed to affordable housing in St. Petersburg.
District 8: Jeff Danner – Danner won the praises of the committee because of his strong commitment to TBARTA and smart growth and regional planning.
