Home Editor's Picks Winner and Loser of the Week in Tampa Bay Politics

Winner and Loser of the Week in Tampa Bay Politics

by The 100 Companies

Winner: Jane Castor

The Tampa Mayor faces a handful of challengers for her office in City Hall, but she’s coming out a winner anyway, racking up several notable, and bipartisan nods to keep her job. 

Loser: Tampa Bay Area Regional Transit Authority

TBARTA isn’t faring well after state Sen. Nick DiCeglie followed in his predecessor’s footsteps by filing a bill to dissolve the agency. Like, former Sen. Jeff Brandes, DiCeglie said the agency lacks “ actionable and deliverable” initiatives.

Even if it survives the third attempt to dissolve, the agency has faced state funding vetoes four of the last five years.
