Kathleen Ford: City Council is a rubber stamp



ST. PETERSBURG -- Think this might come back to haunt her if she gets elected?

During the mayoral forum at City Hall Thursday night, the candidates were asked whether they agreed with those who call the City Council a rubber stamp.

Kathleen Ford said yes.

Bill Foster said no.

Although, really, what else could he say? He was on the City Council until 2008 and was known for getting along with almost everyone.

Ford also served on the council. She, however, was known for aggressively questioning then Mayor David Fischer.
