Winner: Rick Kriseman — After years of service, he’ll get some time to himself to not be tilting at windmills in Tallahassee. The rest of us all lose on this one.
Loser: Peter Schorsch — I like Peter and I agree with him on issues often enough that I regularly link to him here even when people tell me I shouldn’t. But I know he has a personal thing with Kriseman and his top aide Kevin King, even if I don’t know the source of the conflict. Regardless of that personal strife, it’s obvious that Kriseman was one of the good guys in the legislature and one of the few people fighting for Floridians, including Peter, even if it was an ultimately unsuccessful fight because of the right-wing dominance of state government.
