Harry Cohen for Tampa Mayor
Harry Cohen

The most important work of my life is to continue the work of moving our city forward.

I know how to dream big and aim high. And I know how to actually get things done.

We must be a city that is welcoming to everyone.

The big question we face is how to balance smart growth with preservation of our quality of life.


until the municipal election on March 5, 2019 (Early voting runs February 18 to March 2)
