Tampa billboard pronounces Democrats run city, ‘Enjoy your visit’

When GOP delegates make their way downtown each day next week, they’ll get a reminder that they’re holding their quadrennial convention in a city run by Democrats.

The billboard welcomes Republicans to a city “Where the mayor and all city council members are Democrats,” adding for good measure, “Enjoy our well-run city!”

The billboard was purchased by Ruth’s List Florida, a group that works to elect what it describes as progressive women.

In a written statement announcing Ruth’s List’s billboard, the group’s co-founder, Ellis Robinson, drove home its message: “Electing women makes a difference,” Robinson said. “Women office holders are also more collaborative in their decision-making – both with colleagues and the public. And Democratic women do this better than anyone.”
