The Frank T. Hurley Tourism Person of the Year award was presented May 5th
Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce hosted its Annual Tourism Lunch on Thursday, May 5th, 2016 at the Tradewinds Island Grand Resort. The “Frank T. Hurley Tourism Person of the Year” award, in honor of the late Frank T. Hurley, was awarded to Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni.
Morroni was praised for his help in guiding the bed tax, saving what would have been an excruciating budget cut from the St. Pete/Clearwater CVB. He was awarded by the 2015 recipient, Tony Satterfield of the Alden Suites, along with Dannette Lynch of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association and Robin Sollie of the TBBCoC.
