Bay Area Governor

Since the Tampa Bay Area will have representation in the Governor's Mansion with either Jim Davis (Tampa) or Charlie Crist (St. Petersburg) do you think that the Greater Bay Area will reap some benefits? Perhaps we'll ahve a better chance to get funding for new projects like roads or a Commuter Rail System similar to the deal that Jeb helped push for O-Town?

The main flaws with the financing plan is that though it is just tax benefits....it is still money out of the pockets of the people in St. Pete/Pinellas. Money now or money over 30 years is still money. Other issues involve parking...there is very little in that area of town, and unlike large cities with transit, it is not easy to get there without a car, or park further away and ride in. Overall I would love to see a new stadium, but I would love even more to see a winning team on the field. I am a big Rays fan, but we need a team that can win. They are getting better, and with the new pitching we should see marked improvement, but only time will tell.
