Pinellas Realtor Organization supports Long for County Commission

Janet Long has won the support of the Pinellas Realtor Organization in her campaign for a County Commission seat.

Long got the news June 28 in an email from Brian D. Shuford, the organization's director of governmental affairs. The decision came after the group interviewed Long.

"We admire your desire to continue serving the citizens of our community in this important capacity," Shuford wrote. "Based on the interview and various other criteria, I am pleased to report that our board of directors has voted to officially support your election to the Pinellas County Commission."

Long, 67, is running for the commission Seat 1 seat currently held by Neil Brickfield. Long, a Democrat, is a former state representative and once served on the Seminole City Council.

Brickfield, 49, is a Republican who is a former member of the Safety Harbor City Commission. He is seeking his second term.

Seat 1 is an at-large position elected countywide. County commissioners serve four-year terms and are paid $90,389 a year.
