Kudos to Mayor Pam Iorio for wooing Paul Wilborn back home to be point man for the creative arts. Wilborn’s appointment as city manager for creative industries underscores the mayor’s commitment to promoting artists as well as a cultural arts district.
Wilborn, currently a senior writer for the Associated Press in Los Angeles, was previously a prominent and popular journalist on both sides of Tampa Bay. He is also a talent on stage and in front of a piano. Look for Wilborn to be a good fit with the creative set.
Many will also look for the return of Paul Wilborn and the Pop Tarts.
