The television wars are heating up in the St. Petersburg mayor's race.
Challenger Rick Kriseman is releasing another commercial blasting Mayor Bill Foster's record. In the 30-second spot, the narrator talks about the Pier, a car allowance for city employees, the fire fee and cuts to Meals on Wheels. The ad is titled "Treading Water."
"With Bill Foster as mayor, St. Pete is treading water," the narrator says. "We can do better. Rick Kriseman. The Tampa Bay Times and Charlie Crist endorsed Kriseman for his strong leadership and vision. Rick Kriseman."
Voters will cast ballots on Nov. 5.
