"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.

"Last week, the Port Authority negotiated a deal with the Irish bank who owned Channelside. In short, it broke the log jam, and I look forward to seeing how developers plan to activate the complex. In addition, we celebrated the completion of Pierhouse, Related Group's first project in Tampa, that will bring more than 500 new residents into our urban core. It’s a new day in the Channel District."
