Calling out former FL CFO Alex Sink in Creative Loafing Tampa


Seeing my name in print never gets old. It happens kinda often enough that I should be used to it by now, but it is still a cool feeling.

The image above comes from a recent article in Tampa's Creative Loafing newspaper. In an article entitled, Tampa rich guys, who benefit from new Rays stadium, sign letter supporting new Rays stadium, writer Colin Wolf cites a recent tweet I posted regarding former Florida CFO Alex Sink.

Without going into the details of the article and discussing the group of non-baseball fan elites of Tampa who want to rob baseball fans of half the games of their favorite team, let me discuss where the tweet came from.

Former Florida CFO Alex Sink was one of the 36 Tampa elites who signed a letter to the Tampa Bay Times claiming half a season of Rays baseball is acceptable because it is better than no baseball. I looked up Ms. Sink on twitter and found a few of her tweets regarding her opposition to giving money to corporations. The Rays are definitely a corporation and would definitely receive public money from the building a new baseball stadium in Tampa. That sounds like something Ms. Sink would be against. Instead she is publicly supporting it.

No rich person is going to tell another rich person they aren't wearing any clothes.

But anyway, I am in Creative Loafing Tampa. Check it out.
