My name is John Godwin, and I'm running for Tampa City Council. I have dedicated my adult life to serving my community, state, and country; and I'm excited about the opportunity to continue serving Tampa on our City Council. Tampa has experienced amazing growth and there's more to come - Tampa's best days are ahead of us as long as we have leaders who are ready to bring together our many neighborhoods and communities to prepare us to be a city of the future. I'm ready to do that. I'll bring vision and energy to our City Council to serve all of Tampa.
