Katherine Harris may have lost in the race for U.S. Senate, but she has won the designation “Citizen of the Year” from her the Kiwanis Club in her hometown, Longboat Key.
“We see her as a definite asset to our key,” said Kelly Kary, president of the club.
Kary said Harris helped get the local post office named for decorated Air Force Gen. James V. Edmundson, among other local services.
“She stood in the storm and held her own there for a while” during the 2000 presidential election recount, Kary added.
