I’m happy to deliver you our April Governmental Affairs and Public Policy Update. This update will highlight the latest initiatives that may directly impact your business, our community and the real estate industry at all levels. We want to ensure you stay informed.
This month our Governmental Affairs Committee hosted a 2021 Hillsborough County Schools Forum with Superintendent Addison Davis and School Board Member Lynn Gray. During the forum, we discussed several issues, including the 2021 school year, the school budget, capital expenditure projects, and the future vision of Hillsborough County Schools. To learn more about these issues, I encourage you to watch the webinar.
