ST. PETERSBURG — When the St. Petersburg City Council returned from its monthlong vacation last week, a string of well-wishers congratulated one council member on her recent nuptials.

The former Lisa Wheeler-Brown married Lynnie Bowman on June 24. Her husband is a retired Largo city employee who now works for St. Petersburg in the stormwater department.

Her initials stay the same, a fact noted by one of her colleagues.

"We're just going to call her the notorious LWB," quipped council chairwoman Amy Foster.
