Wishing you all a healthy and joyous holiday season

December 17, 2020

While many of us won’t be celebrating the holidays as we normally would, my hope is that the spirit of this season brings you and your families joy and gratitude for the blessings that you enjoy.

The Tampa Bay EDC team and I are grateful to you for standing with us during this challenging year, and for your unwavering commitment to our mission to bring good jobs, capital investment and greater prosperity to Tampa and Hillsborough County. We’ve continued making great strides in spite of the circumstances, and I promise you’ll be thrilled with the very exciting announcements we’ll have to share with you early next quarter.

I invite you to review our FY2020 Annual Report. This beautifully designed piece, created by our long-time advertising agency and Investor Trickey Jennus, highlights our significant recruitment and business and expansion wins. Several of these companies have already hired hundreds of local people since announcing their projects this past fiscal year – jobs that our community certainly needs in times like these.

Thank you so much for all that you do for your organizations and this community. I am so proud of the way everyone has pulled together this year to help those who are hurting financially and emotionally. I wish you a Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, and a much happier New Year in 2021.
