Best Of 2019

Best Local Dennis Kuchinich: Topher Morrison

Best Local Dennis Kuchinich

Topher Morrison

I loved the positivity Topher Morrison brought to his longshot bid to become Tampa’s next mayor, and I 100% would’ve voted for him if the 2016 presidential election didn’t teach me that no race is a sure thing when a rich guy with questionable policies (sorry, David) is running against a sensible, moderate seemingly obvious frontrunner. Topher got less than 900 votes in the spring election (compared to the more than 23,000 Jane Castor earned), but I trust that he had deep conversations with every single one of those people who felt confident enough to put a check by his name on the ballot.
