PolitiFact Florida's Buck-O-Meter sizes up Bob Buckhorn's performance at the two-year mark
Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn marks two years in office — the midpoint of his four-term term — on Monday, so it seems like a good time to check on whether he's keeping the promises he made as a candidate.
The Buck-O-Meter, a project of PolitiFact Florida, the political fact-checking arm of the Tampa Bay Times, is out today with the first of eight new updates on the mayor’s follow-through since taking office.
The campaign promises (and the Buck-O-Meter's ratings):
• Incorporate New Urbanism concepts in land development codes (Compromise).
• Create a series of initiatives to improve parks and public spaces (In the Works).
Check back for more new updates on Friday.
