Ford, Foster want another lawyer to fill mayor's chair



ST. PETERSBURG — Kathleen Ford the lawyer in many ways mirrors the image of Kathleen Ford the mayoral candidate. Tenacious. And detailed.

Likewise, Bill Foster the lawyer mimics the perception of Bill Foster the mayoral candidate. Steady. And dependable.

When Midtown activist Theresa Lassiter asked for help, Foster showed up at Shirley's Soul Food restaurant to provide free legal advice to those who walked through the door.

Ford and Foster, two lawyers running for mayor in a field of 10, are counting on their legal backgrounds to boost their political aspirations.
