Pinellas County Commissioners Rene Flowers and Kathleen Peters have both been re-elected after qualifying without opposition.
Peters, a Republican, has served on the Commission since her first election in 2018 to District 6. Flowers, a Democrat, is a newer member of the Board, first elected to the single-member District 7 seat in 2020.
The incumbents were joined by outgoing Rep. Chris Latvala, who will succeed Karen Seel on the Pinellas County Commission after qualifying for the role without any opposition, sending him directly to the District 5 seat.
Latvala will replace Seel, who decided to retire from the seat she’s held since 1999.
