Move over Rahm Emanuel, there’s a new Mayor taking Foursquare by storm. Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn is launching the most innovative use of the application by an elected official yet. By taking advantage of features like lists and tips and personally checking-in to select venues, Buckhorn is going beyond simply setting up a branded channel.

Lists by Mayor Buckhorn include City Parks, Attractions, Dining and Shopping, Government Buildings and Public Safety. Residents of the city as well as tourists will be able to see the unique places Tampa has to offer, all recommended by the city’s real-life Mayor. At many locations, Buckhorn has left his own personal tips ranging from his favorite ride at Busch Gardens to his favorite meal at the famous Columbia Restaurant.

Buckhorn has also committed to personally checking in at venues around the city. While the mayor of one of the nation’s largest cities can’t check in everywhere he goes, he will be sure to let citizens know when he’s meeting with other city leaders, working in his office, and on occasion enjoying a night on the town. Next time you’re at the theatre or dinner, you might just find that the Mayor is in the house. This means that if you check in enough at the venues he likes, you may even get to unseat the Mayor...on Foursquare of course.
