It was good to hear our Mayor and former Mayor chat Tampa Politics today on 820am! Even better to hear some the Mayor's plans for the City and the fact he has a 25 year vision to make Downtown Tampa a focal point. He is correct in Stating the River has been seen as boundary at the West side of the city, Pam Iorio started the city on the path to recognize the River and its beauty, Bob Buckhorn seems like he wants to continue on that path. The Key is for us, the People of Tampa, to make sure we stay on this path. I for one do not like seeing the City of Orlando ahead of us in any Category but over the past 20 years they have used Lake Eola to improve the look and feel of their city. We need to do the same thing. Let's Not Talk about it. Let's Do something about it.
To often our City Leaders play to one group, focusing on ONE part of the City ONLY. Be it Ybor City, Seminole Heights or Channel Side or the Beloved River Walk. So far Mr. Buckhorn seems like he believes in a Greater Tampa that includes all its Neighborhoods. Bravo Sir
