Mayor Bob Buckhorn
Every year, Mayor Bob Buckhorn and the Mayor’s Hispanic Heritage Committee join Santa to deliver presents and a little holiday magic to children at Desoto Elementary. Watch the video of this year’s delivery.

"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 announcement that Tampa would host the 2017 College Football Playoff Championship game and the first non-stop flight from Tampa to Panama City, Panama were big milestones for our community. This holiday season, I am most thankful for the everyday heroes who keep us safe and our city moving forward from the first responders to the Neighborhood Enhancement teams keeping our city clean."
