Florida Matters Newsmaker Preview: St. Pete Mayor Rick Kriseman

Andy Lalino

St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman is wrapping up the first month of his second term in office. This week on Florida Matters he'll talk about his goals for this term, and how he plans to unite a city that was divided during last year's bitter mayoral race.

In this preview, Kriseman talks with host Robin Sussingham about lawmakers in Tallahassee battling local governments over control. He's concerned, especially since the area lost some of it representation when Pinellas County Senator Jack Latvala resigned amid sexual harassment allegations.
