Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn filed paperwork to run for re-election Friday morning at the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office.
Tampa municipal elections are scheduled for March 3.
In a statement announcing his plans, Buckhorn touted some of his accomplishments after taking office in April 2011.
“We made strategic investments in infrastructure, re-centered our city towards the riverfront, and shaped Tampa into the competitive city it is today,” Buckhorn said. “I have challenged myself and this community to think beyond what’s happening now and focus on what we can do next. By building opportunity, we build a community where everyone can succeed.”
