St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster on the Rays, the Pier, and More

The decisions made by St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster and the city council over the next year years will shape the city for decades to come.

Specifically, Foster is trying to keep ahold of the Tampa Bay Rays, and rebuild the city's iconic Pier.

Florida Matters' Carson Cooper interviewed Foster for our Newsmakers series.

He asks Foster about both of those issues -- as well as his plans for cutting the budget, his feelings about Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, and his plans for the Republican National Convention.
