Tampa council candidate Seth Nelson reveals endorsements
First-time Tampa City Council candidate Seth Nelson today announced two endorsements: One from Hillsborough County Commissioner Kevin Beckner and another from former City Council member Shawn Harrison. Nelson, an attorney, previously worked at Harrison's law firm. He also volunteered for Beckner's county commission run in 2008. City Council races are nonpartisan, but the endorsements show Nelson has some bipartisan support. Beckner is a Democrat, and Harrison, a candidate for the Florida's District 60 House seat, is a Republican.
Nelson is running for the citywide District 3 seat in 2011. Linda Saul-Sena currently holds the post and is term-limited out. So far, no one has filed to run against Nelson.
