Rick Kriseman to roll out his policy ‘plan’ for St. Petersburg on Wednesday

in Uncategorized by

Rick Kriseman will roll out his “Plan for a Better St. Petersburg” Wednesday morning at a press conference in the city’s Historic Kenwood neighborhood.

The mayoral candidate will announce his proposal October 2 at 9:00 a.m. in Seminole Park, near the corner of Third Avenue North and 30th Street. This expected focus of his strategy for St. Pete will be on stronger neighborhoods and jobs.

In the latest StPetePolls survey of likely voters in the Nov. 5 citywide election, the former City Council member and state House representative leads incumbent Mayor Bill Foster 48 to 43 percent among voters. Eight percent of voters are undecided.

Kriseman says he was “pleased but not surprised” with his strong lead. “There is no excitement for this administration,” he told reporters in September. “There are no achievements that Bill Foster can point to that are the direct results of him being mayor.”
