Leslie Waters kicks off her campaign for State Senate.

(June 11, 2011) Leslie Waters, Republican candidate for State Senate District 13 in the 2012 elections went back to her roots and kicked off her campaign today before a crowd of about 100 enthusiastic supporters at Gulfport’s Habana Cafe, the same location where in 1997 she kicked off her successful campaign for the Florida House of Representatives. She is running against State Representative James C. “Jim” Frishe, who is also a Republican. Waters is considered a political moderate, is well-connected with the political establishment in Pinellas County, and is running on a “good government” platform that stresses her extensive experience in public service. More information about her campaign can be found at the Waters campaign website, located here.
