Rene Flowers Endorses Gina Driscoll

Complete Statement


"Exciting and difficult times are ahead of the city of St. Petersburg and as such, the need for strong and thoughtful leadership is required.

     Over the past few months, the voters have had a chance to listen to the candidates and determine who best represents the district as well as the city. The ability to communicate not just with the other members of council, but the staff and the community is paramount.

     The understanding of business acumen, the historic value of minority communities, understanding true economic development evolving from small business and other entrepreneur interests and the drive towards hiring local are all conditions of which I am especially driven to in this race.

     As this race has opened city wide for the General Election, I have had the chance to hear from both candidates. The race was long and hard- filled initially with some very strong candidates with ideas that would certainly propel this city through to the next level. However, of the candidates remaining, I , Rene Flowers, am choosing to endorse Ms, Gina Driscoll in the District 6 City Council race.

     Ms. Driscoll is taking the time to listen to the concerns from residents of the entire city, she has the ability to communicate effectively with those of opposing as well as like-minded viewpoints, she has expressed a sincere desire to work hand in hand with organizations focused on expanding the reach of opportunity city wide , she supports the concept of Climate Change, and she supports the efforts currently in progress as well as those yet to come regarding an educational partnership for our students.

     On or before November 7th, cast your ballot for Gina Driscoll- I know that I will!"

Paid by Gina Driscoll for St. Petersburg City Council, District 6.
