Because Harris’ background is more business than politics, he can avoid the cronyism associated with individuals which have spent their careers serving as a politician. Harris feels his background enables him to view the problems facing Pinellas County from a fresh perspective, and avoid choosing solutions or coming to conclusions that have failed his constituents repeatedly.
Harris will campaign for Pinellas County Commission District Six as a Libertarian. His commitment to civil liberties, personal freedoms, free trade, and fiscal responsibility should stimulate the Pinellas County economy, which continues to lag behind the remainder of Tampa Bay.
