Former Hillsborough prosecutor Karen Stanley runs for Circuit Court
Former Hillsborough chief assistant state attorney Karen L. Stanley Tuesday announced her candidacy for the Circuit Court seat now held by retiring judge Sam Pendino, and she immediately picked up the endorsement of her former boss.
"There is no one who is respected more among prosecutors, defense attorneys, law enforcement and the public then Karen," Hillsborough State Attorney Mark Ober said in a news release. "It is my honor to support her candidacy for judge, as there is no one more qualified."
Tampa attorney Laura E. Ward also is running for the seat, which comes up for election in 2014.
