The Suncoast Sierra Club is endorsing former Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch for Mayor of St. Petersburg.
“Welch has an outstanding track record of fighting for his constituents and for equity in all of its forms,” said Dan Huber, Sierra Club spokesperson. “He is a progressive voice focused on community development, climate resiliency and infrastructure, affordable housing, enhanced public transportation, and transparency and accountability in City government.”
Welch faces St. Pete City Council member Robert Blackmon in the November mayoral election.
“Our natural resources, parks and waterways are vital to the continued transformation of the Sunshine City,” Welch said.
