All statements involving Bill Foster

"Unemployment in the city of St. Petersburg is below the state average."

"Tampa got more (federal housing) money because they scored higher on the blight scoring system, so they've got a much bigger problem than we do."

"Sixty percent of the auto thefts that we have in (St. Petersburg) are caused by people leaving their keys in the car."

Says that while Foster was mayor, Rick Kriseman was "ineffective" in the Florida House of Representatives because "there was no legislation that passed the House that had (Kriseman’s) name on it."

"If we don't spend money on a pier, then that money does wipe into the general funds of the city or the county, and if you send it to the county, you never see it again."

"Since I was elected, crime rates have been at their lowest in over a decade."
