St. Petersburg City Council's 'Notorious LWB' now goes by Lisa Wheeler-Bowman



The St. Petersburg City Council has been on vacation since its June 16 meeting. As council members, staff and the public gathered for committee meetings Thursday, many congratulated a council member on her recent nuptials.

The former Lisa Wheeler-Brown married Lynnie Bowman on June 24. Her husband is a retired Largo city employee who now works for St. Petersburg in the stormwater department.

Lisa Wheeler-Bowman said she wasn't sure how to spread the news. Her bio page on the city website has been changed. So has her nameplate in on the council dais. 

Her initials stay the same. A fact noted by one of her colleagues.

"We're just going to call her the notorious LWB," quipped council chairwoman Amy Foster.
