Tampa activist shows Mitchell some love



Bill Mitchell has been endorsed by political activist Karen Perez.

Perez, a member of Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio’s Healthcare Advisory Board, is a former candidate for state House District 60. Mitchell has also been endorsed by Fred Taylor, a three-time Purple Heart recipient and past president of the Order of the Purple Heart who is running in the Democratic primary for state Senate District 11.

Mitchell, a Tampa attorney and Vietnam veteran, is one of three Democrats looking for a chance to take over the U.S. House District 9 seat held by Gus Bilirakis.
