As we get closer to the Event that is know as the Republican Convention our City & County Leaders are concerned about our look. Like a Parent who is overly focused on his/her child's make-up before the big show, Bayshore Blvd. driving surface is now a major issue. What the bumps and flooding problems that have always been there are just now an issue? 4 Super Bowls and many Gasparilla Parades now our leaders make it Job #1. OK, OK as a long term Tampa Resident I may be a bit over the top on this but come on. Tampa isn't Detroit, meaning we shouldn't have to lay a thin layer of pavement over our signature beauty spot. Let's be honest there are important things that need to be fixed not just for the Convention but for the City as a whole. Why not use the "Pavement" funds to fix up the City Marina? Yes, it to is along Bayshore Blvd but with it's location it can be seen by anyone who happend to be at the Convention Center. Unlike Bayshore Blvd driving surface, which let's face it, not many visiters will be driving on. We all know that the folks who live on Bayshore want this done, not the majority of City Residents.
Why not focus on the Homeless?
