Mayor Rick Kriseman will watch Obama speech with Sarasota Democrats
When the nation tunes in next week to watch President Barack Obama deliver his State of the Union address, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman is heading to Sarasota County.
Kriseman will watch the address with members of the Democratic Club of Sarasota
"Rick's victory in the recent election is a big win not just for St. Petersburg but for all Democrats in the state of Florida," according to a statement on the club's website. "A past speaker at club luncheons, Rick is a favorite with our members."
Sarasota Democrats ran phone banks to help track down absentee voters for Kriseman in November, the Sarasota Herald Tribune reports. The club will gather at 8 p.m. in the Bayfront Community Center at 803 N. Tamiami Trail. Cost to attend is $20.
