Tampa Mayor Iorio Wants Another Term

Pam Iorio
TAMPA -

Tampa mayor Pam Iorio says she's running again because she likes to get things done.

There was no hesitation when she was asked to recount her accomplishments as mayor.

IORIO: In the past four years we've seen tremendous changes. Our downtown is bursting at the seams with construction, dotted with cranes, condominiums being built and many more slated. We've seen a lot of neighborhood improvements, our crime rate is down 29 percent, we've put so much more into the neighborhoods, particularly with storm water improvements.

Iorio says transportation will be a major focus of a second term. Earlier this year, she called for the city to move forward with plans for a commuter rail system.

Three other candidates have filed to run for mayor. One of them is a Tampa police captain. The election will be held March 6.
