After an arduous and often controversial Legislative Session in Tallahassee, local legislators have returned to their home base in Tampa Bay – right on time for the release of the ninth-annual list of Tampa Bay’s Most Powerful Politicians by Florida Politics.
The list, set to be released next week, has become a yearly source to name “who’s who” in the Bay area political sphere.
To compile the names, Florida Politics consults a panel of the region’s leading political consultants, activists, operatives and lobbyists. The panelists draft lists, which are translated into a points system used to calculate the final ranking.
