St. Augustine, Fla. — Today, Kim Kendall, candidate for State House District 18, announced the endorsement of St. Johns County Tax Collector Dennis Hollingsworth. Since launching her campaign, Kim has been endorsed by an impressive slate of state, local, and military leaders, political organizations, and business owners.

Dennis Hollingsworth joined the St. Johns County Tax Collector’s Office in 1978 as a field inspector and title clerk.

“Ms. Kendall has a proven record for knowing this district by her tenacious work ethic,” said Tax Collector Dennis Hollingsworth. “She has been seen at schools, industry, nonprofit, government, and first responders to learn, listen, and formalize a way to improve her constituents’ lives. I have confidence that Ms. Kendall will represent me and the people in my district well.”
