Storms makes it official



Hillsborough County commissioner Ronda Storms on Thursday formally submitted her resignation so she can run for the state Senate, ending months of speculation over whether she really would. The resignation, effective after the November election, is irrevocable under state law.

This was billed as a "major announcement" in an e-mail from the county public information office, and Storms drew some criticism from a former commissioner and a political foe about her use of county workers to send out a press release tangentially involving her political campaign.

Storms was unruffled by the criticism. More here.
