The planning and follow-through by Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor, Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee provided the Tampa Bay area an unmeasurable bonus for our community. The efforts of the above and Assistant Police Chief John Bennett and the many others who were involved, along with a little help from Isaac, provided a big win for us.
A son is retired Secret Service and has been involved in these types of events. We have just an inkling of the effort and coordination required, and we are very appreciative.
We moved to Tampa in the mid 1980s. We have enjoyed living here, and this convention effort has made us very proud to be "locals."
If our national politicians could perform as well, how much better our country could be.
