Bill Foster: The unwitting pitch-man

in Uncategorized by


Michael Van Sickler from the Tampa Bay Times posted this humorous article on how Mayor Bill Foster’s image is being used by a house-flipper in a local magazine ad, and they even have a video testimonial with Foster himself giving a glowing account of one of the house-flipper’s rehabs, it’s not even taken out of context. The Mayor responds in his usual legal-speak, “I didn’t authorize the use of my name for marketing purposes,”, and “I’ll take a look at this… If we have to take action, we will”. Watch out Joe Cavaleri, you’ve slightly annoyed Mayor Bill Foster, man of mystery!
