At a fundraising event Tuesday evening at the Moren Center for Clay, I asked former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker if he could recall the moment he knew he wanted to run again for mayor. He told me that it wasn’t a moment but more of a process. However, the moment he knew running again was the right thing occurred when he recently announced his candidacy on the steps of City Hall. The former two-term mayor said he saw a woman in the crowd who had left hospice to come out and support his campaign. She had been waiting for over an hour for the event to start.
