Spotlight On Government


"Spotlight on Government" is a program dedicated to informing the residents of Tampa and all of Hillsborough County about the people, events, and issues that affect them on a day-to-day basis. We spotlight government officials, industry leaders, educators, and volunteers from a variety of social, fraternal, service, and environmental organizations.
