New Year’s Resolutions

Mayor_Rick_Kriseman_w200Mayor Rick Kriseman  — “In 2015, I will continue our commitment to building a city of opportunity for all, with a sharp focus on the areas of greatest need in our community. This means diligent work and partnership every day to build better schools, businesses and neighborhoods throughout St. Petersburg – in a way that delivers a brighter future for everyone fortunate enough to call our city home.”

Rene FlowersRene Flowers — “For the last five years I have taken to a “New Year’s Prayer” rather than a resolution in that resolutions, for me, do not hold me to a commitment. To each of you, my prayer for 2015 is for my community to realize the jewel that it is! I pray that all that makes us unique and different is something that we celebrate and are not envious of. I pray that the youth feel the love that has been poured out from our ancestors over the last 2000 years – the lineage of kings, queens, prince, and princesses. I pray that we celebrate the seniors in our community for the hard roads traveled and the wisdom they have imparted upon those with an ear to listen and a heart of understanding. I pray that this year is a prelude to the goodness of who we are, the essence of who we were and the richness of what is yet to come.”
