Realtors endorse Rose Ferlita; builders go for Bob Buckhorn
TAMPA -- Mayoral candidates Rose Ferlita and Bob Buckhorn are splitting endorsements from a pair of groups with big stakes in growth and development. Ferlita picked up the endorsement of the Greater Tampa Association of Realtors. Buckhorn got the nod of the Associated Builders and Contractors. Ferlita announced the Realtors' recommendation during her hour-long tele-town hall meeting Monday night, which her campaign says attracted about 4,000 Tampa voters.
