#ACYPLMacedonia in Florida -- Meeting with Mayor Rick Kriseman, St. Petersburg City Hall

I was honored to be the State Host of the delegation of Macedonian political leaders for the American Council of Young Political Leaders (ACYPL) in December, organizing a 6-day visit in December.

We were thankful for the opportunity to sit down with the Mayor of St. Petersburg Rick Kriseman.
 Mayor Kriseman leads a city of more than 250,000 - and a city government of nearly 3,000 employees.

Mayor Kriseman was just re-elected to a 2nd 4-year term.  Previously he served in the Florida House of Representatives (3 2-year terms) and prior to that he served on the St. Petersburg City Council.
We had a robust discussion about state and local government, transparency, budgeting, and more.  One of the delegates was a Mayor in Macedonia. Great exchange.
