On the campaign trail with County Commissioner Nancy Bostock

By on October 13, 2012

In another very close race for Pinellas County Commission, incumbent Republican Nancy Bostock is facing off against former State Senator Democrat Charlie Justice.

Justice had slight lead in the last round of polls conducted by St. Pete Poll results: Justice 46.3%, Bostock 43.6% with 10.2% undecided.

Saint PetersBlog contributor Daphne Taylor Street caught up with Commissioner Bostock to ask about her campaign as of right now.

DS: How is the campaign going?

NB: This is the best part of the campaign! Pinellas citizens are more and more engaged as Election Day draws nearer and now that mail-in ballots are going out. Going out into the community talking with them is invigorating. The message of cutting spending and reducing taxes resonates with so many folks– especially in this tough economy. We’ve had a lot of fun with sign waving and I am very thankful to all the good people volunteering with the campaign.

DS: What do you expect to happen between now and Election Day?

NB: Between now and Election Day, our campaign will continue with our community wide grassroots efforts. We’re knocking on doors, sign waving and attending events all over the County. Citizens may be tired of all the political rhetoric on TV and elsewhere, but they like meeting their local elected officials.

I’m fortunate to serve in local government, first on the School Board and now on the County Commission, where we are truly “government closest to the people.” I love it every time I meet someone new and his or her face lights up with recognition, “Nancy Bostock? You’re the lady with all the signs!”

DS: Any surprises in store?

NB: Every day on the campaign trail is a surprise!
