Images from Election 2009

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

Those running for elected office in St. Petersburg were subjected to attending a gauntlet of sparsely-attended candidate forums, such as this one in Midtown. Not counting the candidates and their entourages, fewer than two dozen residents bothered to attend the meeting — about the same number of people who attended most of these events. In the run-up to the 2009 Municipal Elections, the City Council’s decision to vacate the sidewalk outside of BayWalk became a national story after a fight broke…

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

St. Petersburg City Council candidate Steve Kornell’s new television ad is up on YouTube and I gotta be honest, it’s very effective.

Up until this point, Kornell’s opponent, Angela Rouson, had all of the momentum going into the General Election — momentum…

The PBA’s, I mean Bill Foster’s, mail-piece about the PBA supporting Bill Foster

in Uncategorized by

No one ever accused Bill Foster of being extravagant, but you’d think he could spring for a little more in production costs when he printed this mail-piece. It’s like 5″ x 7″. This postcard is way too small and since it is being delivered on Junk Mail Wednesday, it’s bound to end up in the garbage. That’s a shame because the mail-piece delivers an important message about Foster being endorsed by both the PBA and the FOP. In an election…
