Abstract

Interview with former councilwoman Linda Saul-Sena who served on the Tampa City Council, Tampa Arts Council, and the Tampa Planning Commission for 20 years. Mrs. Saul-Sena discusses her family history in Tampa, starting in the 1920s, when her grandparents moved to Tampa with their family business. Mrs. Saul-Sena recalls her interest in politics and the strong political environment in her home. Mrs. Saul-Sena also details her work and accomplishments on the planning commission that positively transformed areas such as Hyde Park and Davis Islands. She talks about experiences as a councilwoman and her dealings with various political figures in Tampa, such as mayors Dick Greco and Pam Iorio. She discusses her involvement on having a street named in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and with Tampa's Human Rights Ordinance that sought equal rights and legal protections for the gay community. Finally she talks about her current career as a columnist for Creative Loafing wherein Mrs. Saul-Sena writes on architectural and design topics.
