Chamber Heads to Tallahassee to Advocate for St. Pete

Posted On 03/11/2019 by Matt Lettelleir

On March 20th, St. Pete is taking over Tallahassee.

The Chamber has travelled to Tallahassee to meet with our legislators in the past, but this year is different. We are bringing the best of St. Pete to the Capitol Courtyard with local artists, a Grand Prix car, puppies from SPCA Tampa Bay, beer from local breweries and more.

Attendees on this two-day trip, presented by Lewis, Longman, and Walker, will meet with legislators, receive briefings from the Florida Chamber, get a private tour of the Governor’s Mansion, and have opportunities to observe the legislative process first hand from the House and Senate Galleries. The main event will be in the Capitol Courtyard where legislators, staffers and visitors will experience what makes St. Pete great in an evening celebration. Sponsorships and individual registrations are still available.

Additionally, the Chamber’s Legislative Committee has developed a robust list of priorities and agenda items members will advocate for during the trip. The St. Petersburg Museum of History, funding for the arts, TBARTA, and affordable housing are all top priorities for the Chamber this year.

We will be tracking our priorities for the entire 60 day session and have regular updates on this blog throughout. Please contact Matt Lettelleir at mlettelleir@stpete.com with any questions.
