Mayor Rick Kriseman delivered three annual rundowns of the city's affairs since taking office in 2014, making good on a campaign promise.
All of Kriseman's addresses, delivered in January, can be watched on YouTube or found on the city website.
At his swearing-in, Kriseman laid out his hopes for the future of the city. He waited a year to deliver his first "state of the city" address, a common practice for executive branch leaders.
That 2015 speech showcased a major announcement for the St. Petersburg police department.
"Today I am pleased to announce that I will be asking our city council to approve an agreement with Pinellas County that will provide the final $20 million in penny funding needed to build — in one phase — a new police station," Kriseman said on the steps of city hall.
The project took sometime to take off. A groundbreaking ceremony was held in April 2017 to start construction of the building, which is set to finish by the end of 2018.
In his 2016 address, Kriseman touted the future of the new St. Petersburg pier despite breaking his promise to have it built by the end of 2015. He also reiterated his goal to keep the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg and announced plans for the formation of a Baseball Forever Campaign.
Kriseman said the campaign would unite St. Petersburg-based Rays fans, business leaders and elected officials under the same goal.
"They will be asked to pitch our city to the Tampa Bay Rays by demonstrating future fan and corporate support and the many benefits of remaining on the current site, perhaps on the site's eastern half closer to our bustling downtown and waterfront," he said.
In his 2017 address, Kriseman reaffirmed his commitment and responsibility to fix the sewage crisis, but admitted that the problem may persist as the wastewater system is upgraded. It is estimated that the city dumped 200 million gallons of sewage into local bays and streets.
The mayor also mentioned President Donald Trump, who was less than a week away from moving into the Oval Office.
"My criticisms of him are not about politics," Kriseman said. "I simply disagreed with much of what he said and how he said it."
Kriseman's companion promise to make himself and staff available to the press on a regular basis is rated Promise Kept.
