Incumbent St. Petersburg City Council member Brandi Gabbard will retain her District 2 seat after challenger Kyle Hall withdrew from the race, leaving her unopposed.
Hall filed his campaign withdrawal letter Sept. 14. He was Gabbard’s only opponent in the District 2 race, automatically advancing both candidates to the General Election run-off.
With his withdrawal, Gabbard no longer has an opponent, handing her automatic reelection.
“As we look forward, I promise to continue working every day on the issues that matter to you, from affordable housing to supporting small businesses, and investment in infrastructure to build climate resilient neighborhoods,” Gabbard said.
