Life and politics from the Sunshine State's best city

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. Who needs culture, arts or a new hotel anyway? It seems as though whatever gains are made for one arena, there’s always criticism from another – but that’s the nature of politics. Join Tiger Bay for a “State of The City” address. Bring your tough questions, but no illegal dumping, please! From Tami Simms-Powell.
