#11 on list of Tampa Bay’s Most Powerful Politicians — Darryl Rouson

May 18, 2016 - St. Petersburg-based Democrat Darryl Rouson barely advanced from the House to the Senate last year, defeating former state Rep. Ed Narain in the Hillsborough County-centric Senate District 19 race by just 75 votes. Rouson proposed 31 bills before the session began, and as someone who has been known to work well with Republicans (sometimes too well, for some Democrats’ tastes) was listed as a co-sponsor on 20 other bills, many introduced by GOP members. A pioneer of sorts, Rouson became the first African-American prosecutor in Pinellas County where he was also awarded the Florida Prosecutor Association Award in 1981. And in March, he was one of just a very few number of Democrats named by House Speaker Richard Corcoran to the Constitution Revision Commission.

Tampa Bay is nation's 2nd best area for first-time homebuyers

May 15, 2017 - For first- time homebuyers, you can't beat the Orlando and Tampa Bay areas. Despite steadily rising prices, both are relatively affordable compared to the West Coast and Northeast at a time when nearly half of all buyers are first-timers, a new Zillow report says. As millennials — those in the 18-34 age group — "reach the typical home buying age, they are coming into a tough housing market with low inventory and lots of competition," said Svenja Gudell, Zillow's chief economist. "More challenging metro areas aren't out of reach for new buyers, but they should be prepared to face a more competitive buying environment." Click here to learn more
