One of the most interesting local races taking place next month is the Democratic primary in Pinellas County’s District 3 County Commission race, between environmentalist Darden Rice and former St. Pete City Councilwoman Renee Flowers.

Over the weekend, WMNF spoke to both candidates about the race, beginning with Darden Rice. Rice, made an unsuccessful bid for St. Pete City Council back in 2005.

She’s running against Flowers, who in addition to her two terms on the St. Pete City Council, was also the president of the Florida League of Cities.

The winner of the Democratic primary on Aug. 26 will face Republican Nancy Bostock in November.
