Mary, Mary, not contrary

Mary_alvarez Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio has appointed former City Council member Mary Alvarez to the Tampa Sports Authority. Alvarez will replace Al Barnes, who passed away in April.

“I’ve always wanted to be on the Sports Authority and never had the opportunity,” Alvarez said. “I think it will broaden my horizons a little bit more.” Alvarez served on the City Council for two terms, and became one of Iorio’s most loyal supporters.
