It seems most people think the biggest failure of the Kriseman Administration is the sewage spill into the bay and the way Mayor Kriseman and his staff handled it and the way they are still handling the wastewater problem.
Somewhat lost in all the clatter about the wastewater problem, south St. Pete and midtown is the way the Mayor Kriseman and his team handled the Pier and Pier Park.
Here from my Blog is a sampling of Posts that chronicle the way Kriseman managed to disregard the will of the people on the Pier.
The St. Pete Pier Committee ranking of proposals, eight hours in the weeds and 3 hours ranking to no decision
Bill Ballard, Concerned Citizens of St. Petersburg clarifies his views on City Council Action Regarding the Selection Committee Rankings
Kriseman’s approach in the Pier Selection process was a deliberate effort to send the people a message that through their vote, they cannot tell his administration what to do.
It all boils down to this: If Kriseman didn’t respect your vote on the Pier enough to follow the will of the people, why would you give it to him, for another term as Mayor?
