Firefighters Back McCallum-Sorta
UPDATE: That endorsement is not so clear cut. Winnie Newton, president of the St Petersburg Association of Firefighters, said members interviewed Heller but that he told them at the time he hadn't decided whether he would get in the race.
Said Newton: We didn't choose her over Bill Heller. .. He did very well in the interview process and was very well received. But we couldn't consider him. How do you endorse someone who hasn't decided if they're going to run or not.''
