Tampa Mayor Supports The MCM

Tampa mayor Bob Buckhorn is in no hurry to court Cuba. He has taken the position of the Uber- Right Wing "Miami Cuban Mafia". His aloofness is at odds with most in Tampa, from the business chamber to other elected officials, many of whom have visited Cuba already and have been actively pushing for better relations with Havana. Could it be that Buckhorn's antipathy is calculated for a speculated run for governor in 2018, where he would appeal more to South Florida's Cuban exiles? I am sure he knows that polls show a majority of Cuban-Americans say the U.S. should end its embargo of Cuba. 

On the other side of the pond the great mayor of St. Pete Rick Kriseman is a player. He didn't hide his glee earlier this week when the United States and Cuba reopened their long-closed embassies. "This can only mean great things for the Sunshine City and the Tampa Bay area," Kriseman said on Twitter and Facebook, where he repeated his intent to visit Cuba. He even wants to steal the Cuban consulate office from Ybor City. here
