Ex-Largo candidate to run for Seel's Pinellas Commission spot

Robert Avery, who lost a bid last year for Largo City Commission after flinging a slew of ethics charges, has found a new goal: running for the Pinellas County Commission seat held by Republican Karen Seel.

Avery, 26, filed to run Wednesday as a Republican. His website still focuses on his city campaign from 2010.

Seel, who has previously expressed interest in running for Congress, hasn't filed to run yet,. She's the senior-most member of the board.

Avery didn't immediately return a message seeking comment, but here's a candidate guide by the Times that included him in 2010.
