The three final St. Pete Pier Designs

Water entrance of pierThe three final St. Pete Pier Designs- Take a closer look-St. Pete Buzz April 23, 2015

Today I read a post on facebook about the Pier Selection Committee Meeting that will be held tonight. It is open to the public starting at 6:00 pm at City Hall.

The post was done by Jon Reno who is a very devoted citizen and business man. Everybody that knows him, knows his love and commitment for the City of St. Pete.

He was under attack for voicing his opinion about his preference of the three final St. Pete Pier designs. As he mentioned he does not have a problem with people voicing their own opinions. The important issue is educating yourself in order to make an informed decision.

The following are the full design videos of the final three choices (in no specific order). Please take the time to watch the videos and make your own informed assessments.

One of the common denominators The citizens of St. Pete have is The love for this city. It is not the first time the Pier has been the center of controversy. We can agree to disagree. The important issue is to remember this is the “New Millenium” and all decisions made today will impact generations to come.

Senator Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul, is the Republican candidate running for President.  Listening to him made me think “Finally the Republicans have a worthy candidate.  Worthy of listening to what he has to say.  He speaks with conviction and logic.  He makes sense to me.  It is time we start making some money “The Old School Way”. You Gotta work!!!!  Earn it!!!! Enjoy it with pride!  Hear him  and you decide.
