We begin this month with more changes as we continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately we are seeing some progress, and we are cautiously optimistic as we go forward. Here I’ve gathered the latest information for you regarding the ease of restrictions on our beaches, businesses and more, along with helpful resources for a variety of needs. What keeps me going during this challenging time? Seeing our community coming together to help friends, neighbors, and sometimes perfect strangers with a meal, a mask, or an encouraging word. It’s truly inspiring to see this spirit of unity throughout our city – St. Pete still shines, even during a storm such as this. Whether you have volunteered with Feeding Tampa Bay, donated to Daystar, called an elderly neighbor to check on them, or simply stayed home to keep yourself and others healthy, thank you for doing your part. My work continues as your City Council Member, and I am here for you. If you have questions, need information, or for help connecting with resources, please call my office or send me an email. I’ll assist you in any way I can. Stay strong and healthy, St. Pete.
