St. Petersburg City Council member Darden Rice is launching a television ad Tuesday promoting her campaign for Mayor.
The ad, “cheers,” emphasizes Rice’s accomplishments on City Council.
In a press release accompanying the ad, Rice’s campaign highlighted three specific accomplishments: helping to secure $15 million for affordable housing from countywide Penny for Pinellas funds, working to rebuild St. Pete’s economy following the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic and making St. Pete “one of the most welcoming cities in Florida.”
The ad specifically references Rice as a progressive option in the non-partisan race. She’s one of four frontrunners in the race.
