Foster Lied about Opposing Offshore Oil Drilling

St. Petersburg – At a live debate on Tuesday, mayoral frontrunner Rick Kriseman criticized St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster for failing to lead on offshore oil drilling in 2010 after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. 

"Democrats and Republicans alike came together in 2010 to oppose offshore oil drilling," said Kriseman. "Mr. Foster was missing in action on an issue that would have killed jobs and diminished our quality of life."
Foster scoffed at Kriseman's claims. 

"I've always been opposed to drilling off of our coast," said Foster.  

But city records show that Foster voted against a resolution in 2001 to urge the federal government to ban offshore oil drilling. 

"This is another case of Bill Foster doing one thing and saying another," said Kriseman. "It's shameful."
