Mary Mulhern [D-Tampa City Council] Has Come Out Swinging.
Just six months into her stint on the City Council, newcomer Mary Mulhern has come out swinging.
-She is single-handedly pushing for a change in the composition of the county's Environmental Protection Commission.
-She questioned why the City Council didn't have more of a role in choosing a developer for the remaking of Fort Homer Hesterly Armory.
-She brought public attention to plans to build a jet fuel pipeline through Tampa neighborhoods.
-She's working to turn Seminole Heights thoroughfares from one-way to two-way streets.
Her no-holds-barred enthusiasm has earned her praise from some fellow council members, admiration of neighborhood leaders and the attention of Hillsborough County Democrats.
