Sen. Jeff Brandes is endorsing Tom Mullins for St. Pete City Council District 4.
Brandes is a high-profile, long-serving Republican representing Senate District 24, which covers parts of St. Pete. His Libertarian-leaning philosophies often put him at odds with his own party, prompting his removal as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Mullins has been an executive with Raymond James since the late 1980s.
“Tom Mullins brings the experience we need at this time to the City Council. His background in the transport and environmental sectors will be a tremendous asset to St. Petersburg,” Brandes said in a statement released Friday.
