Rouson backs Rice in Pinellas commission race
State Rep. Darryl Rouson has endorsed Darden Rice's campaign for the at large District 3 County Commission seat held by Bob Stewart, who is stepping down. Rice faces former St. Pete City Council member Rene Flowers in the Democratic primary. The winner will face School Board member Nancy Bostock, a Republican.
"I have known Darden's work for the past eight years, and I have been impressed with her dedication and commitment to public service," Rouson said in a statement. "Not only has she been strong on environmental concerns, she has been a warrior for the rights of all citizens. I respect Darden, and I give her my full and heartfelt endorsement."
