St. Pete Mayor endorses Sink




St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman has endorsed Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink, who faces off against Republican David Jolly and Libertarian Lucas Overby in the March 11 special election.

Sink's campaign put out this statement:

“I am proud to support Alex Sink because I know she will bring the  bipartisan, results oriented values she’s practiced all her life to Washington and finally get Congress focused on solving problems that matter,” said St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman. “At City Hall, we know firsthand that the challenges facing our community are not partisan issues – that’s why we need a leader like Alex Sink who will bring Republicans, Democrats and Independents together to tackle our most pressing problems, and I know we can trust Alex to take the voices of every Pinellas resident to Washington.”

The mayor's office is non-partisan, but Kriseman is a Democrat who previously served as a state representative.
