Word around the tree-lighting ceremony at Williams Park last night was that Rick Kriseman has decided to remain in the Florida House and will not run for Mayor of St. Petersburg. Still unclear is if this decision was made to clear the way for County Commissioner Ken Welch to make his own bid for Mayor. There was also talk that both Kriseman and Welch have decided to stay in their respective seats and rally around another candidate, such as Jamie Bennett or Scott Wagman. What is clear is that Florida and Pinellas will continue to be well-served by Rep. Kriseman in the Florida House, at a time when his leadership is desperately needed.
