"Former Bush West Wing Politico Trades RNC for B&B in Small Town Gulfport"
- Visit St. Pete/Clearwater: Six Local Stories, August 2012

STORY: Gulfport Chamber of Commerce President Lori Rosso exchanged her former West-Wing DC life for that of local small-town innkeeper 10 years ago. Since then, she’s become Gulfport’s No. 1 advocate, and a local tourism and business leader.

Watching her father start as an entrepreneur and turn politician, Lori Rosso did it in reverse order. A graduate of American University in 1987, Lori spent more than a decade in Washington D.C. in a number of positions, including Special Assistant to the Assistant to the President for Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs in the West Wing of the White House for President George H. W. Bush. In 2002, she decided to “retire” by operating an inn overseas, but bombing in Afghanistan led her to look for something in the good ‘ole USA. She eventually found her way to the historic St. Pete/Clearwater area town of Gulfport. Just 25 days after seeing the property, Lori took over the Sea Breeze Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn. In the decade she has been in business, she has seen her business grow in this small, funky town with a strong independent streak, eventually serving as President of the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce. If anyone knows how to put the lesson learned from hardscrabble politics into soft-sell hospitality, it’s Lori Rosso.
