Bill Foster does something right for once

As the old saying goes, “Even a stopped clock is right twice a day”, and even our stumbling Mayor Bill Foster can manage to do the right thing once in a while. Today we felt the need to praise Bill Foster for his approval of domestic benefits for all city employees. Of course the Tampa Bay Times article mentions several times how he downplayed the significance of his decision, perhaps in an attempt to offer an excuse to his conservative base for his straying from the party line. It also might have been simply a calculated decision on Foster’s part to help him gain favor in the gay community ahead of next year’s race for Mayor. But don’t think that this changes our mind about Mayor Foster over all, he has a long way to go to undo all of the stumbles, incompetence and lack of leadership that he has shown for the last two years he’s been in office.
