What other publications are writing about the St. Petersburg mayoral race
The Weekly Challenger: "For the first time in two decades, the Mayor’s race is playing out on a wide-open field among African-Americans. Compared to the past four election cycles – all shrouded by racial tension – this one appears to be more about issues of substance and economic security."
Tampa Bay Business Journal: "Candidates Kathleen Ford and Bill Foster are both attorneys and both previously served on the City Council. But their approach to day-to-day business issues differs, from how the city should deal with local vendors to growth management issues. Ford advocates looking at state and federal grant funding for new technology jobs, while Foster talks about public/private partnerships. And while Foster said he would 'champion' light rail, Ford sounded more cautious about the costs involved."
