Former St. Petersburg City Council member Frank Peterman endorses Angela Rouson



ST. PETERSBURG -- City Council candidate Angela Rouson picked up another notable endorsement in the District 5 race against Joe Smith and Steve Kornell.

From her campaign:

Angela Rouson is proud to receive the support and endorsement of Reverend Frank Peterman, Jr.

"The Reverend Peterman has always helped us find the best in ourselves, and I stride to do the same." Angela Rouson.

Reverend Frank Peterman Jr. said:“District 5 is fortunate enough to have three strong candidates running for the St. Petersburg City Council. But the clear-cut best choice for District 5 and the city of St. Petersburg is Angela Rouson. As a former City Council member, I respect Angela’s ability to ask the tough questions and to hold herself and other leaders accountable. As a reverend, I am impressed with Angela’s commitment to her family and faith. Being a wife and mother is a full-time job, yet Angela has always found time to give back and then some to our community. As a longtime resident and the former state legislator for our area, I am excited by Angela’s vision for the neighborhoods of District 5 and the entire city. My background helps me understand the qualities needed in a leader, Angela Rouson is that leader we need on city council.”
