Jobs and the Economy

Kathy spearheaded new jobs and investments in the Tampa Bay area, including the Port of Tampa, Port Manatee, University of South Florida, the Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa International Airport, MacDill Airforce Base, and new and expanded community health centers.  She also worked to bring new jobs to redevelop downtown Tampa and Encore and improve local transportation through the I-4 Selmon Crosstown Connector.

In recent months, Kathy helped pass the bipartisan JOBS Act, which helps create new jobs and businesses by cutting the red tape that too often gets in the way of growth.  And earlier this year, she brought together over 75 employers at the Tampa Bay Jobs Fair to help foster economic development in the region and provide opportunities for local job seekers. 

Kathy knows that there is more work to be done, and she looks forward to fighting for jobs and investment in Tampa Bay.  The economy is growing, and Kathy will help keep the momentum going.
