PolitiFact Florida: Checking on Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn's first year in office



PolitiFact Florida created the Buck-O-Meter to track the campaign promises Bob Buckhorn made when running for mayor of Tampa. The Buck-O-Meter includes 34 separate campaign promises, and to mark Buckhorn's first anniversary in office, we've checked in on each promise and reported our findings.

Read our overview of Buckhorn's first year in office; you can also browse reports on individual promises here

The tally for Buckhorn's first year:


• 12 Promises Kept

• 10 promises In the Works.

• Six promises Stalled.

• Four promises in a Compromise.

• Two Promises Broken

We also follow Rick Scott's campaign promises on our Scott-O-Meter and Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez's campaign promises on our Carlos-O-Meter.
