What the media are saying about Bill Foster's mayoral win



Tampa Tribune: The stress of the campaign is over, and now Bill Foster is ready to begin planning for his transition to city hall as mayor.

ABC Action News: Newly elected St. Petersburg mayor Bill Foster may shake things up when he takes office in January. He is hoping police there will give chase to criminals as long as it can be done safely. Right now the St. Petersburg police department only gives chase to "violent felony offenders."

MyFox Tampa Bay: St. Petersburg mayor-elect Bill Foster has to close down his law practice, and current mayor Rick Baker has to find a job. "I do intend to apply for the president's job at St. Pete College" Baker says, "That application process- I'm going to have to get working on" on that.

Creative Loafing: Bill Foster awakens this morning to his lifelong dream: He is now the mayor of St. Petersburg.

Tampa Bay Business Journal: He outlined his position on leading business issues for the Tampa Bay Business Journal. He said he would be “ a champion for the public/private investment into clean energy systems and policies” and “supports the vision and regional approach” for light rail and other mass transit options in Tampa Bay Regional Transportation Authority’s plan.
