Before being elected for the commission, Gerard served as the first female Mayor of Largo for eight years.
Ruth’s List Florida is backing Pinellas County Commissioner Pat Gerard as she seeks reelection for the District 2 seat.
The organization is dedicated to electing Democratic, pro-choice women in Florida. This is Ruth’s List’s third endorsement of Gerard, who flipped the seat from red to blue in 2014 and was re-elected in 2018.
“We were honored to endorse Pat when she flipped this Pinellas County Commission seat from red to blue in 2014, and are once again proud to lend our support to her re-election bid,” Lucy Sedgwick, president & CEO of Ruth’s List Florida said in a statement. “Her rich experience as an elected official as well as her dedication to the community makes her the right choice for Pinellas County Commission.”
