Members of the Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) submitted questions for individuals who have announced their candidacy for mayor of the City of St. Petersburg in 2009. The questions were reviewed by members of the DNA board of directors, whose work resulted in the following six questions. Six of the announced candidates—Jamie Bennett, Kathleen Ford, Bill Foster, Scott Wagman, Larry Williams, and Paul Congemi—responded with detailed answers.
See what the candidates said.......

After Fay passed us by, the notes below remain a useful reminder for future alerts. If a hurricane watch is in effect:
• Balconies and patios must be completely emptied from anything could blow away. Heavy items must be tied or bungeed down.
• Absolutely NO gas generators on the balconies are allowed. These are a violation of fire code.
• Keep your balcony doors closed and sealed at all times during the storm (please see instructions downstairs or ask a neighbor how to do this properly).
• We may face the possible loss of electricity. This means that the building may be without water. It may be a good idea to fill up your bathtub. This will help flush your toilet in the case of power outage.
• If we get a blowing sideways rain... it is a good idea to have a few towels ready to soak up any water that may enter the building.
• Please photograph and describe any damage to the best of your ability; this could help subsequent claims.
• For more info about Hurricane Preparedness go to
For Emergency Info call Taylor Adams 710-1888 or Madelyn Kinemond 515-4610

Many of the machines are self-explanatory:
Working down the left wall the next machine is the cable machine. There are many exercises for this piece of equipment but my favorite is called the woodchopper. This exercise is simple but works the entire center core. The other most common exercise here is the chest cable crossover. As the name implies it works the chest and there are at least three ways to do this exercise.
Working around the elliptical machines the next weight machine is specifically for the arms. From the seat you can do curls for the biceps and extensions for the triceps.
Directly in front of this machine is the Lat pulldown / rowing machine. There are a number of exercises that can be done here, but with very few exceptions, they all work the back muscles.
That’s the basics on the machines.
Below are information for semi permanent non-disposable air handler filters. Both these filters are washable and both have a 5 year warranty.
We elected to go for the Filterama EZ-2000 electrostatic filter http://filtera.stores.yahoo.net/ezelairfil.html. This filter is on sale for $49.50 pus $1.00 shipping if ordered on the internet.
Another higher even higher rated non disposable filter is the Riteair Boair electrostatic filter http://www.riteair.com/esffeatures.htm?bs=&pn=/filtercat.htm&ps=www.riteair.com&si=27cc466ace9a3c46dd12627f295dc84f&ai=00020019. It is on sale for $75.96 plus shipping.
Our air handlers in the one bedroom lofts are Goodman 1.5 ton capacity and take a non standard 14 X 18 X1 filter. The U channel that holds the filter is a little generous and most filters are actually 3/8" less than the stated dimensions to allow for fit. Disposable filters are light weight and actually "suck up" to the air handler inlet frame. I'm not sure how this will work with the heavier aluminum framed non disposable filter -so I"ll shim it slightly to make it fit tightly against the inlet.
I'm pursuing PM options on our Goodman heat pumps.

Our phone system can dial your cell phone or home phone. Contact Rampart to have your phone number programmed into the box. Remember, if you forget your key, you can always “beep” yourself into the building.
All tenants must have their lease on file with Rampart Property Management. It is the owner's responsibility to submit the original lease as well as Association application.
We all love pets, but we don't all love getting into the elevator to find evidence that Fifi has been there before us. Please continue to clean up after your pets in common areas. Pets are not to be taken through the main lobby, but should use the garage entrance instead.
Ground Level Parking
Please remember to park no more than 3 hours per day on the grade level parking area. Also, remember to remove your car by 11:00PM to avoid being towed. We do tow.
Forget your keys often?
In an effort to help those who occasionally lock themselves out of their units, Key Lock Box boards have been installed in the 9th and 11th floor trash rooms. If you would like to have your own lock box the cost is $35.00. Contact Rampart if you are interested in this.
These serve as an alternative to HID card keys and fit conveniently on your key ring.
Living in a condominium is wonderful. Let's keep in mind that while we pay our monthly maintenance fees these do not cover all our expenses. Think you can add value to our building or neighbors? Have a passion for something? Let us know. If everyone does something small then big things can happen. Also, it keeps everyone's fees in check, and keeps us the most sought-after place to live in St Petersburg :)
Remember to scan your card on the way into and out of the parking garage. Try not to take a ticket unless absolutely necessary. Also, please remember to park only on the 6th or 7th Floor.

Here are the instructions for how to close the doors to your balcony.
If you have a single door leading outside you must fully close it and then pull up on the handle. This sets the pins into the top-bottom and sides of the frame. Test that the door is properly closed by very firmly pulling on the door to see if it opens. These doors are designed to handle 130 mph winds – you cannot hurt them by trying to pull them open.
If you have double doors leading outside you must fully close the left side door and then pull up on the handle. Then close the right side door and pull up on the handle. This sets the pins into the top-bottom and sides of the frame. Test that the doors are properly closed by very firmly pulling on the doors to see if they open.
With rainy season coming, it is imperative that our terrace doors be properly secured. Otherwise when we have wind and rain it is possible for water to enter your unit and then find its way to units below. Please consider the damage you might cause to another’s unit. It is important that all of us follow these simple instructions. Please also check your condo insurance and liability insurance to ensure you are adequately covered for any damage your un-locked doors may cause for units below you.

We have established a few simple procedures for moves and large deliveries, and ask that you ensure that your movers abide by these procedures.
1. At least 48 hours in advance, notice must be given to Rampart Properties at 727-577- 2200 requesting the elevator pads be put in place.
2. Most moving vans prefer to park on the north side of 2nd Ave S facing west. This will allow the quickest access to the main elevator without going up stairs. All moves and large deliveries must be made through the rear door (west entrance) only.
Thank you, and we hope your day and your move goes smoothly and trouble-free!
