Leonard Schmiege: BayWalk vote represents what's wrong with City Council
ST. PETERSBURG -- District 8 candidate Leonard Schmiege was steamed Thursday over the City Council's decision to reconsider giving away the sidewalk fronting BayWalk.
"It's sort of a knife in the back of the public to take all the public in put, vote one way, get one council member to flip, and then come back a week later and say, 'we don't care what you say, we are going to move forward on this,'" he said. "The new council is going to have to clean up."
