Tampa's new landlord training program moves the needle on PolitiFact Florida's Buck-O-Meter



Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn and other city officials met Tuesday with about 150 landlords to talk about city codes and ways to keep rental properties in good repair. The new program, which has another landlord training session scheduled for Oct. 28, moves the needle from "In the works" to "Kept" on one of the 34 campaign promises being tracked by PolitiFact Florida's Buck-O-Meter. (Click here for the Buck-O-Meter's rating on this promise.) With this latest update, Buckhorn's ratings on the Buck-O-Meter stand at 19 promises kept, eight that resulted in a compromise, three promises broken, two stalled and two still in the works.
