THis weekend St. Petersburg with host the opening party for the Republican National Convention. In an effort to make sure the elected politicians do not have to meet the voters the City has received a million dollar grant to help with security. This is NO financial benefit to the City from this party. and the city is investing hundreds of hours in “sprucing up the City for visitors who will be kept away form the local by an extensive security Labyrinth. I stop today to take a few pictures of the barricaded and was stopped by two police with in three min. questioned and asked for ID. Along with my driver’s license I presented them with my Florida Bar card and that made things go MUCH SMOOTHER.
Here are a couple of the pictures I took today.
