Mayor Buckhorn

Mayor Buckhorn and U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood kicked-off last week's bicycle safety summit with a bike tour of downtown Tampa.


"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 in Germany to recruit more business to Tampa. If we are truly going to be an international destination, then we've got to go get the business. We've got to plant Tampa's flag around the globe in areas where we have strategic advantages, where we have existing relationships, and where we have companies that are interested in establishing a presence here."
