"From the Desk of Mayor Buckhorn" is designed to give citizens greater insight into the Mayor's Office. Every week, Mayor Buckhorn will offer a snippet of what he's currently working on.

"This week, I'm traveling to both Baltimore for the Tampa Chamber of Commerce Benchmarking Visit and Denver for the Urban Land Institute Rose Fellowship Fall Meeting. I'm looking forward to learning from the successes of other cities as well as sharing what we're doing here in Tampa. We'll be looking at how to expand technology clusters, particularly in biotech and defense, and studying strategies to build a more vibrant downtown."
