    Event Description:
    Monthly luncheon featuring speaker: Mayor of the City of Tampa Jane Castor
    Jane Castor is the 59th Mayor of the City of Tampa.
     
    She served 31 years with the Tampa Police Department, working her way from a beat cop to the first female Chief of Police.  Castor helped reduce major crime by 70% citywide. She ensured public safety during the 2012 Republican National Convention and the first Bollywood Awards in America. She also oversaw the security plan for Super Bowl XLIII and led the Department of Homeland Security’s Tampa Bay Urban Area Security Initiative.
     
    Community outreach has always been a cornerstone of Castor’s career. As a cop, Jane knew the families, business owners, and community leaders in her neighborhood and, as Chief, she expected every officer to do the same. Under her watch, everyone was to be treated with dignity and respect.
     
    She also implemented several programs to help at-risk youths. Under Jane’s leadership, the police department built a RICH House in the city to provide a safe haven for hundreds of economically disadvantaged kids. She also raised $4 million to build a recreation center. The Police Athletic League now offers after school/summer programs for 500+ at-risk youths.
     
    On a national and local level, Castor is recognized for her leadership in law enforcement and community involvement. She has received multiple awards including the 2015 USF President’s Distinguished Citizen Award, 2014 Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s Woman of Influence Award, and more.
     
    Jane is a proud born and raised Tampanian. She resides in Seminole Heights where she raised her two sons, Sergei and Seely.

    Additionally, the West Tampa Chamber of Commerce will recognize the West Tampa Teacher of the Year, the 2019 Class 6A State Baseball Champions from Jesuit High School, and Dr. Cameron Tebbi, Pediatric Oncologist.
