To the untrained observer, Tampa City Council member Luis Viera might not immediately jump to mind when contemplating influential politicians.
The New Tampa resident legislates and leads quietly, but effectively. His soft demeanor and charming presence lends itself well to coalition-building, and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who has any real beef with Viera.
But that quiet disposition is exactly what takes Viera to the top.
“Councilman Viera is one of the most visible elected officials you will find,” said RSA Consulting President and CEO Ron Pierce.
But it’s Viera’s work advocating for underserved communities that most stands out.
