There are still Rick Baker yard signs waiting to be picked up on bulk trash day, but that didn’t stop Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch from expressing his interest in a 2021 mayoral bid.
No formal announcement has been made, but when put on the spot about a possible 2021 mayoral campaign while meeting with Hillsborough County Commissioner Sandy Murman at Cafe con Tampa, Welch didn’t go out of his way to refute it.
“It’s never been a secret,” Welch said. “I’m strongly considering it. More strongly than ever before.”
