Michael Ciftci reacts to St. Pete Times story — and the Times responds back
On Sunday the St. Petersburg Times wrote a blistering story on District 3 Tampa City Council candidate Michael Ciftci and his group, United for a Sustainable America (UFSA), which received $100,000 in state funds to build 50 homes in Haiti and create 150 jobs — half to go to Floridians.
The story by Times reporter Jack Nicas details how Ciftci “overhauled” the proposal a month after the $100,000 was allotted, shifting expenses so that $13,000 would go to “each of three green business summits” and “$12,000 each to Ciftci and three USFA colleagues.”
