Tampa to name Taylor Swift honorary mayor one day before tour stop – NewsNaija.com.ng


Pop star Taylor Swift can now add a mayor to her extensive resume after the city of Tampa, Florida, announced that she will be named an “honorary mayor” one day before her “Eras” tour comes to town.

Tampa Mayor Jane Castor said in a video message posted on social media that Swift’s fans, nicknamed “Swifties,” were wondering how Tampa can do the same after other cities made big moves to honor the “Anti-Hero” singer.

“We know Glendale changed its name, Arlington made a street sign, and Las Vegas lit up its Gateway Arches, but here in Tampa, we have a reputation to uphold,” Castor said. “We want to go bigger. So I want to present you with a key to the city.”

“Mayor Swift has a nice sound to it,” Castor continued. “We can’t wait to welcome you and your fans to Tampa (Taylor’s Version).”

The city’s Twitter account also changed its Username to “City of Tampa (Taylor’s Version)” in recognition of the tour coming to the city on Thursday.
