ST. PETERSBURG — After pledging to make rejuvenation of the city’s poorest neighborhoods a top priority, Mayor-elect Rick Kriseman on Thursday named a longtime hospital administrator as his deputy mayor and charged her with reducing poverty.

She will be the sole deputy mayor with a citywide purview but is tasked with helping the city meet its Agenda 2020 plan to reduce poverty 30 percent by 2020.
