Tampa Chamber issues statement on the Congressional District 13 race

Chamber President & CEO Bob Rohrlack released the statement below on the Congressional District 13 race:

“With the passing last year of Congressman Bill Young, the Tampa Bay area lost a tireless fighter for MacDill Air Force Base.  While we recognize MacDill lies in Congressional District 14 and we’ve worked closely with Congresswoman Kathy Castor, who is a great supporter of our Base – it is equally important that the person elected to Congressional District 13 understand MacDill’s significant regional economic impact.  Our congressional delegation has traditionally been supportive of MacDill, but it is essential that those members of Congress that represent any portion of Hillsborough or Pinellas counties take a special interest in helping to protect MacDill Air Force Base, our service members, veterans and their families. No matter who is elected, we stand ready to work with them on issues important to our military. We ask all three candidates for the Congressional District 13 seat to firmly commit to fight for MacDill and our military servicemen and women.”
