Tampa council candidate assures he was born in the USA
Tampa City Council candidate Seth Nelson, who's running for Linda Saul-Sena's citywide District 3 seat in 2011, has launched his campaign website at www.sethnelson2011.com. In addition to outlining his positions on such issues as economic development, transportation and the environment, the site includes a faux press release to assure voters that he was born in the United States and has a Maryland registration of birth to prove it. The release says it's not clear "whether this news could lead to a possible Presidential bid."
In an interview, Nelson said he takes matters facing the city of Tampa very seriously. "However, I don't take myself very seriously," he said. "You have to enjoy what you're doing and have fun along the way. During tough times sometimes it helps to laugh."
