Building on the momentum created by the official launch of his campaign, Tampa City Council Candidate Scott Strepina (District 2-Citywide) today announced that his campaign tallied over $5,000 in cash contributions during the second quarter of 2010, which led among among all Tampa City Council candidates.

“Our campaign continues to show that the residents of Tampa are fed up with city leadership and are seeking a clear alternative. I am humbled by the level of support from Tampa voters and energized to bring our mutual goals of fiscal responsibility, economic development and job growth to Tampa and City Hall this March.”

This announcement followed a large gathering of enthusiastic supporters and contributors at the official launch of the campaign.  The kickoff held on Tuesday, June 29th at the Historic Hyde Park home of Datz Deli owners Roger and Suzanne Perry was filled to capacity as Deborah Cox-Roush welcomed the candidate.

“I am excited to be here to introduce Scott Strepina,” said Cox-Roush.  “I have been impressed with him from the beginning.  He is a hard-working, engaged member of the Tampa community, and the first step in a much-needed new wave of leadership on the Tampa City Council.”

Strepina is currently the only candidate on the ballot for the citywide district.  Incumbent Mary Mulhern has offered a conditional statement of intent to run for re-election, if she does not identify a higher office to pursue.
