(St. Pete, FL) – Barclay Harless is gaining strong momentum in his campaign for St. Petersburg City Council District 2. Former Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Alex Sink has endorsed Barclay in his bid for City Council. The Barclay Harless campaign has released issues and positions to outline his plan for St. Pete with a fiscally responsible approach to many of the major challenges that face St. Pete.
“Barclay’s private sector experience, coupled with his unique service as a Legislative Aide, on the Pinellas County Charter Review Commission, and on non-profit boards gives him a fresh perspective on how to get things done in City Hall,” said Alex Sink, former Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO). “Business leaders want elected officials who are accountable, who get results, and who will ensure that big-ticket items stay within timelines and budgets. Barclay’s unique and balanced background has prepared him well for the challenges that face St. Pete,” continued Sink.
“Being an advocate for our small businesses is a true passion of mine. We have real opportunities to improve parking, to streamline the city’s permitting process, and to reign in the rising costs of doing business in St. Pete. There is no easy path to reach these goals, but I will work hand-in-hand with our public and private sector partners to cut through the red tape and get things done,” said Harless.
Sink’s endorsement follows the endorsement of the Tampa Bay Times and joins a bi-partisan coalition of supporters, including Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni, Pinellas County School Board member Renee Flowers, the West Central Florida Federation of Labor and St. Petersburg council members Lisa Wheeler-Bowman and Jim Kennedy. Harless is vying to succeed outgoing Councilman Kennedy in St. Petersburg City Council, District 2. To learn about
