ST. PETERSBURG, FL (September 1, 2018) – Deborah Clark, Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections, will speak on “Voting and Cyber Security.” Deborah joined the Elections office in 1978 and has been elected every election cycle since 2000. She is committed to conducting fair, accurate and secure elections for Pinellas County. Equity for women requires supportive organizational policies and may require political action. Elections play a vital role in the political process and are a cornerstone of American democracy.
