Attorney Sean Shaw made his announcement Tuesday before noon at the new Bond Community Health Clinic building, which is now called the Tallahassee Progressive Center.
"If a bad piece of legislation says 'D' on it, I won't support it. If a good piece of legislation says 'R' on it, I will support it. The good hard working people of this district deserve nothing less than legislators who are more interested in the quality of life in the district than in partisan politics." said Shaw.
The Florida Division of Elections says other candidates seeking the post, inlcude Attorney Hubert Brown, former Quincy police chief Rodney Moore, Carolyn Roberson, FAMU professor Anthony Viegbesie, and former aid to Tallahassee's mayor Alan Williams. Incumbent Curtis Richardson cannot seek reelection because of term limits.
