No. 3: Tampa City Council strife

by The 100 Companies

2022 has been a rocky year for Tampa City Council, particularly in March.

First, then-City Council member John Dingfelder resigned following a settlement between him and a development consultant, Stephen Michelini, over a public records lawsuit accusing Dingfelder of intimidation and improper communication of public information.

Then, City Council member Orlando Gudes was accused of sexual harassment, prompting him to resign his position as City Council Chair.

That is all on top of what many view as ongoing dysfunction on City Council that pits warring factions against one another — those who support Mayor Jane Castor’s agenda and those who don’t.
