Best Glad That’s Over: David Straz’s Campaign For Mayor

David Straz’s Campaign For Mayor

We were joking when we wrote that “David Straz’s new ‘Just Imagine’ video is definitely going to turn him into Tampa’s next mayor,” but the campaign took our sarcasm seriously (or seriously misused it) during a follow-up TV spot. After the race, voters learned that Nashville-based political consultant Bill Fletcher was partly responsible for all the bullshit, but, man are we glad Straz can now quietly go back to being one of the city’s biggest supporters of the arts.
