3RD Former TPD, Ret. Capt Jack Diaz, comes forward and says Jane Castor is a LIAR

Tampa voters, Do you think that Jane Castor is a liar?  Read and comment……..


Do you think that it is an issue that Jane Castor’s girlfriend, Ana Cruz, works for (Ballard Partners) is a pro trump lobbying firm?

Jane, Republican or Democrat?

Do you think it is an issue that the firm that Jane Castor’s girlfriend, Ana Cruz, works for is the lobbying firm that represents “American Traffic Solution”, the company that installed the red light cameras in Tampa that Jane Castor strongly supports?

10 News reported in September 2016, “10Investigates first alerted the city of Tampa to its ability to renegotiate a better deal on its lucrative camera contract 2014, but the administration chose not to, with Mayor Buckhorn saying, “we like our contract.” But after 10Investigates reported in April 2016 that the city’s contract again expired without seemingly anyone noticing, city staff spent the summer renegotiating with vendor American Traffic Solutions (ATS).”

Andrew Warren waives death penalty on Michael Keetley after review of Hillsborough County Public Defender’s mitigation letter

On June 5, 2017 this blogger made inquiry to the Hillsborough County’s State Attorney’s office (SAO) about why the office was seeking death on Michael Keetley’s case.  The SAO responded that the case was still under review.  On February 4, 2019, the Tampa Bay Times reported that the SAO made a decision to waive death on Keetley’s case.  Court records show that attorneys from the Hillsborough County Public Defender’s Office, Julianne Holt and Jennifer Spradley, authored a mitigation letter which was submitted to the SAO on September 24, 2018.  Holt and Spradley used to the mitigation evidence gathered by attorney Lyann Goudie and mitigation specialist Donna Murray to write the letter.  Thereafter, the SAO made a decision to waive the death penalty.  Outstanding work by these women.



Video: Former Hillsborough County Commission Candidate Elvis Piggot: Jane Castor’s Partner, Ana Cruz, made veiled threats to his friend while they were out dining

This is the post published by Elvis Piggot on May 23, 2019 in the evening hours during the incident/exchange between Elvis and Ana Cruz at his table while dining with Delia Gadsen:

“Jane Castor and Anna Cruz just stopped at my table to send a threat to Principal Delia Gadson and said to me that she’s very shocked that she considered me a friend. I said I’m shocked at the behavior of Jane Castor while she was the Chief of Police, with racial profiling and and biking while black. It’s not acceptable. She said, so what we have 48% of the vote. If this is how she feels, how could you imagine what she’s going to do when she becomes the mayor? This is why we must get out and vote. We will not be able to live with the consequences that she will bring to the city of Tampa if she’s elected mayor.”

Florida You Judge has reached out to Ana Cruz for comment and reaction to this FB post.  Should Ana Cruz respond to give her side of the story, Florida You Judge will amend this post and include her response.
Is Ana Cruz a Bully?

Straz AD charges Jane Castor with wanting to Double Dip at tax payer expense

FLORIDA POLITICS: David Straz slams Jane Castor for ‘double-dipping’ in latest TV spot



In the AD, Straz pledges not to take a salary ($160K) if elected as mayor.  The AD also states that Straz wants to get rid of waste and inefficiency in the city and its budget.  The Tampa Bay Times  (TBT)’s piece on this issue has a quote by Jane stating that she wouldn’t take a salary either if she drove a Bentley.  Maybe Jane would be able to drive a Bentley if she had the know how to make it in the private sector instead of having to work her whole life making a living at tax payer expense.  Straz in comparison has experience and has been successful in the finance world.  The good book says, a laborer is worthy of his/her wages.  Should Jane hate on someone who has been over the top generous in philanthropic contributions to Tampa?  Even Mayor Bob Buckhorn was as generous as Straz in his praise for him.  Read here.  In 2015 Jane started a private enterprise (also done at tax payer expense and questionable whether the tax payer is getting the best bang for their hard earned buck), a consulting firm, Castor Consulting, and was caught not doing her job by the Miami Herald.   In addition to the issue of not timely doing her work on a tax payer funded project, there are also serious questions surrounding the questionable modification of Jane’s contract that she used as an excuse once the Miami Herald reported that Jane was behind schedule on her work.

The TBT piece, although irrelevant, made mention about Straz’s former support (he has since disavowed) of president Trump.  What TBT’s piece does not mention is that Jane Castor’s paramour, Ana Cruz, is working for a PRO TRUMP lobbying firm. Ana Cruz heads this firm out of Tampa.  Read here: Jane, Republican or Democrat?
