Mayor Bob Buckhorn
Today, Mayor Buckhorn fended off an invasion by Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla at City Hall. These scoundrels learned last year that this Mayor won't be giving the key to the city up without a fight.

"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 Saturday, hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors will line Bayshore Boulevard to celebrate one of Tampa's greatest traditions. The Gasparilla parade is only the beginning of a series of events - from the Gasparilla Distance Classic to the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts - that make up our Gasparilla season. I'm looking forward to all that this exciting time has in store for us.
