Abstract

During the tenure of Tampa Mayor Sandy Freedman (1986-1995), Bob Buckhorn served as Special Assistant to the Mayor beginning in April of 1987 through the fall of 1994. He worked predominately as a liaison to the Tampa City Council and the Hillsborough County Commission. Much of his time was spent working on MacDill Air Force Base related issues. Mr. Buckhorn also discusses issues with the city's growth and the mayor's relationship with the media (the Tampa Tribune and the St. Petersburg Times). The topic of race relations and Mayor Freedman's involvement with Tampa's African American community are also discussed. The interview ends with a discussion of Mr. Buckhorn's overall opinion of Mayor Freedman's tenure. There is also a brief mention of Mr. Buckhorn's time on the Tampa City Council from 1995 through 2003 and his current partnership with the national public affairs firm, the Dewey Square Group.
