Mayor Bob Buckhorn
Tampa City Council Chairman Charlie Miranda has been a great partner to Mayor Buckhorn. The Mayor looks forward to continuing to work with Tampa City Council this year to make Tampa the best place to live, work, and play.

"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.

"Although 2012 was a great year for Tampa, 2013 has already started off strong. Developers are interested in building four new hotels in our downtown, we’re getting closer to completing the Riverwalk, and confidence in our city’s capacity to be great is at an all-time high. I cannot wait to see what the rest of the year has in store."
