Latvala on Hackworth cash limit: "typical campaign rhetoric"
Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala on Thursday evening ripped Democrat Bob Hackworth's campaign pledge to limit donations to $100 from individuals -- excluding companies or anyone with business with the County Commission.
"That tactic of $100 contributions is typical campaign rhetoric -- somebody attacking the incumbent, the system, without talking about the serious issues facing our county,and state and country," said Latvala, a Republican, adding she has the "experience and knowledge" to help the county through "huge challenges" it faces.
Latvala has raised $62,700, by far the most in the field. She has hired consultant Adam Goodman to win re-election.
