Long endorses Rice
State House Rep. Janet Long, D-Seminole, is backing Darden Rice in her race for the Pinellas County County Commission District 3 seat.
"Darden Rice is an energetic young leader who will set an entirely new standard on how we achieve good policies on thoughtful growth management and the environment," Long said in a statement. "She presents the right set of skills and the right attitude to work hard; I know she will make a difference in Pinellas County."
St. Petersburg two Democratic Reps. Darryl Rouson and Rick Kriseman have also endorsed Rice, who faces Rene Flowers in the Democratic primary. Republican School Board member Nancy Bostock waits in the general election.
