The Equality Florida Action PAC, which supports openly LGBT and pro-Equality Candidates, has released its endorsements for the upcoming races in St. Petersburg, FL.
St. Petersburg is Florida's fourth largest city and is part of the state that plays a key role in larger statewide and national elections. Along with the endorsements, the group is asking for people to join them to phone bank for these pro-equality candidates. All you need is a computer and a phone. They supply the phone numbers, script, and training necessary for you to be successful.
A special note, openly gay city council candidate Steve Kornell would be the first openly gay city council member ever in St. Petersburg if elected.
