Larry Biddle lends Darden Rice a hand
Larry Biddle, founder of PlanningWorks in St. Petersburg, has an estimable political resume. He was deputy national finance director for the Howard Dean campaign, a deputy campaign manager for Betty Castor's U.S. Senate run and Internet advisor to state CFO Alex Sink.
Using social networking technology to political advantage is one of Biddle's specialties, and now he's using his skills to support Darden Rice, one of two Democrats campaigning for the District 3 Pinellas County Commission seat.
Why Rice? "She's a winner," Biddle said. "She's a candidate that can connect well with people."
Biddle said he's also working on behalf of State House District 48 Democratic hopeful Carl Zimmerman and District 54 Democratic contender George Gonzalez.
