Mayor Foster backs Jack Latvala for state Senate



Not much surprise here, but Republican Bill Foster, new mayor of St. Petersburg, is supporting Republican Jack Latvala's bid to return to the state Senate in the 2010 election versus Democrat Nina Hayden, a School Board member.

From Latvala's news release Wednesday:

 “Jack Latvala has valuable experience that will benefit our region in Tallahassee. He accomplished many things for the Tampa Bay area and the state as a whole when he served in the Senate from 1994-2002. He was the driving force to end the water wars in the Tampa Bay area, he was a champion for taxpayers, consumers and the environment, and he delivered results for the communities he represented,” Mayor Foster said.
