Indian Rocks Beach Mayor Cookie Kennedy is running for Pinellas County Commission, District 1. She’s running to replace incumbent Janet Long who is not seeking re-election.
Kennedy filed shortly after lunch Wednesday at the Pinellas County Courthouse, where she addressed supporters, emphasizing her deep roots in the community, background in small business and strong work ethic.
“My journey has been that of a public servant genuinely caring and wanting to help our residents. Living in paradise comes with great responsibility. As the Mayor of a city, it is imperative to recognize the inner workings of local and county governments,” Kennedy said.
