Pinellas school board candidate Krassner lining up influential "fans" on Facebook



The election is months away, but Pinellas school board candidate Terry Krassner has already lined up 425 fans on her campaign Facebook page, including influential politicos from both sides of Tampa Bay.

Among them: State Reps. Jim Frishe, R-St. Petersburg, and Peter Nehr, R-Tarpon Springs; Pinellas county commissioners Nancy Bostock and Neil Brickfield; Pinellas school board member Carol Cook; St. Petersburg City Councilman Bill Dudley; former state senator and now state senate candidate Jack Latvala; former state Rep. Sandy Murman, R-Tampa; and former Tampa City Councilman and now state House candidate Shawn Harrison.

Krassner is running for the at-large District 2 seat being vacated by Nina Hayden. At this point, the only other candidate in the race is Jessica Summers of Largo.
