  12/28/11 Tampa Bay Times: Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn off to good start, but expectations are high

Last week, the Tampa Bay Times reported that two thirds of poll respondents were satisfied with the job Mayor Buckhorn has been doing since taking office last April. In this editorial, the Tampa Bay Times highlights some of the Mayor’s accomplishments thus far: 

"Still, Buckhorn deserves credit for deftly sparing police, parks and neighborhood improvement projects from the worst effects of the fourth-consecutive year of declining property values. He has been out and about, raising the visibility of the mayor's office and projecting a mentality that the city is moving forward. And he has followed through on two major campaign promises. The administration is looking at ways to make the bureaucracy more responsive to business and it is taking a comprehensive look at how to redevelop the downtown-area neighborhoods."
