St. Pete Elections
The St. Pete election campaign is winding down, the Mayor's race is still almost too close to call. The important thing is find that Ballot laying around the house, open it up and VOTE. Be sure to follow the instructions in the packet and be extra sure to sign the OUTSIDE of the envelope.

If you would like to check out where the candidates stand on key issues here are some links to questions YOU asked:

As for me, I like Kriseman for Mayor and Margeson, Rice, Nurse and Amy Foster for City Council.
Politics
After the St. Pete elections, look for the transportation tax ballot Item to take front and center, I'll be following it closely.
Now that Representative Bill Young has decided to retire, the politicos will be salivating about who will run. Of the names floating so far I like Ken Welch.
So far (R) Jack Latvala State Senator District 20, and (R) Jeff Brandes Sate Senator District 22 have said they're not interested, for now.
Should you happen to have a nice house for sale in the Congressman's District, bump up the price a few thousand, there will likely be some pretty well heeled politicians looking for a nice residence in the 13th District.
Good Police Work
31-year-old Raymond Samuels who was serving time in an Ohio prison for murder and kidnapping was linked to the murder of Sara Lynn Winesk in 2005 by DNA evidence. Most people would be surprised to know how much effort the St. Pete PD puts into following unsolved homicide cases. Samuels is on his way back to Pinellas county where he will likely be charged.
Cold case work is often frustrating and tedious but they stay at it. Improved linking of criminal information data bases is often the key in cases like this. In others it's just plain old fashion hard police work. Thanks Guys and Gals.
