St. Petersburg Mayor Ken Welch has announced his endorsement of Keesha Benson for Pinellas County School Board, District 3.
“As a Pinellas County Commissioner, and now Mayor of St. Petersburg, I have seen firsthand how Dr. Benson’s work has positively impacted children and families through city and countywide initiatives that shaped the region’s educational and community landscape,” Welch said.
Benson has raised over $30,000 since launching her campaign for the at-large district.
“I am honored to earn Mayor Welch’s endorsement,” Benson said. “An educated and diverse citizenry leads to better outcomes and a stronger economy for the county as a whole.”
