Former St. Pete Councilman and State Representative Rick Kriseman has officially assumed the role of top challenger to St. Pete Mayor Bill Foster this fall (August 27th, to be exact). And in kicking off his campaign, Kriseman has indicated the Rays' stalemate is going to be one of the big issues.
Kriseman told WTVT-TV today "we've got to have that discussion" about Hillsborough sites. "We're not even having that discussion right now."
St. Pete city attorney John Wolfe won't like hearing that, but the Rays certainly will. Should be interesting to see how involved - if at all - the Rays get in supporting Kriseman's campaign.
