Amid convention's glamour, Tampa activists point to city's neglect of poor neighborhoods

In preparation for the Republican National Convention, the city of Tampa has spent a large amount of money sprucing up some of its finest neighborhoods and promoting a positive city image to the international community. But not all of Tampa is lined with mansions, palm trees and newly paved roads. FSRN’s Josh Holton reports that local activists are pointing to pockets of poverty that they say are in desperate need of repair, just a few blocks away from the city’s busy financial and nightlife districts.
