Tampa City Council candidate quits job as deputy court clerk



Harry Cohen, one of five candidates vying for the District 4 Tampa City Council seat, quit his job as chief deputy in the Hillsborough County Clerk of the Circuit Court on Monday.

"I thought that was the appropriate thing to do given I'm campaigning full time," he said.

Cohen, an attorney, had worked in the office since 2005. He also worked on the campaign of Pat Frank, who is clerk of the Circuit Court, in 2004. Cohen was not required to quit his job in order to run for office.
