Kriseman 'State of City' speech moved inside



Mayor Rick Kriseman is fond of sprinkling the phrase "the sun shines here" into his speeches.

But Saturday's "State of the City" address might have proved challenging to that metaphor. Temperatures hovering in the high 40s and wind gusts up to 35 mph would have made a cruel joke out of any references to the warm rays of the sun.

On Wednesday, the mayor's office moved the 10 a.m. address to the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N. 

The even is free and open to the public. 

Last year, Kriseman used the even to recap his accomplishments in his first year in office and outline his priorities for 2015.
