Bill Foster's new mayoral digs



ST. PETERSBURG -- Mayor-elect Bill Foster wasn't too excited about the 1,100-square-foot wing on the mezzanine level of the Municipal Services Center City Hall had roped off for his transition office.

He wanted to be in City Hall.

Not surprisingly, city officials responded to the next boss' wishes.

Foster now has an office on the first floor of City Hall. He also has an aide, whose job responsibilities include fielding Mayor Rick Baker's e-mails.

Foster said the new office is working out well.

Meanwhile, deputy Mayor Tish Elston said staff have arranged individual meetings between Foster and the City Council members and top administrators.
