In H-52, Sean Scott raised $4,375

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

Political newcomer Sean Scott (R) raised a decent $4,375 in his first months on the campaign trail. More important than that, however, is the $2,000 expenditure Scott made on December 20 to retain The Mallard Group, the political consulting firm that represents Rep. Frank Farkas, the current office-holder in District 52. In fact, Scott has been seen around town with key Farkas advisor Chris Davis. The Mallard Group had previously worked with Ross Johnson in this race, but that relationship…

On Martin Dyckman’s retirement

in Peter/Statewide/The Bay and the 'Burg by

All at once, it seems so many good people are leaving the Florida political arena. Take for instance the death of Senator Jack Gordon, who passed away before the holidays. Here was the noblest Roman of them all, so to speak.

Gordon’s death, and…

Adam Smith’s expose on JNC politics is better late than never

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

The difficulty for being Adam Smith, the St. Petersburg Times political editor (other than his getting dressed for the TV program “Political Connections,” on which Smith displays both an ability for insightful journalism and horrendous wardrobe choices, is that his newspaper spent the last four years sleepwalking through the GOP ascendancy in Pinellas politics. That’s why Smith is forced to write catch-up pieces, such as today’s article debating the apoliticalness (new word!) of the Pinellas-Pasco Judicial Nomination Commission. Smith writes…

Rick Baker to enter the Tigers’ Den

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

If $150 per ticket for the Inaugural Ball is a little steep for you, then Tiger Bay’s Yacht Club luncheon price is the bargain opportunity for you to congratulate Rick Baker on his re-election (or perhaps CONA officials will be there to take the credit). But perhaps you’d rather inquire about his CEO salary hike, or fuss that there’s still too much focus on downtown development than elsewhere in the city.
