Being mayor might be a bit easier for some than others - 2017-04-02
Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn and St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman will field questions at today's Florida Economic Forum at Bryan Glazer Family JCC. Clearly, it'll be a bit easier for Buckhorn. He has already earned his second term. No word on whether Rick Baker plans to attend. . . .
Of course, neither Buckhorn nor Kriseman have the unenviable task of being the mayor of Clearwater. In a high-stakes game, George Cretekos must balance Scientology's development plans with what's best for the city. The church holds all the cards and David Miscavige may be dealing from under the deck.
Still, the city deserves a vibrant downtown and the responsibility lies more with Scientology than Cretekos. . . .
