Thank you to all of my neighbors and local leaders who are working to lift our community.
From welcoming Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to the Port of Tampa Bay where we celebrated a $12.6 million dollar grant to lower costs to sharing the good news of lower prescription drug costs with seniors, our neighbors can look forward to relief and progress.
This year’s American Dream Awards gave us the chance to honor some of the immigrants who are opening doors and increasing access to opportunity for everyone who calls Tampa home. Learn more about their stories and work here.
