Journeys of Discovery: Tampa mayor’s trifecta--housing, workforce development & transportation

Correspondent Tom Wilmer reports from Tampa, Florida where he meets with trend-setting mayor, Jane Castor. Central to Castor’s mission, following a 30-year career on the Tampa police force, is a passionate focus on affordable housing, transportation and workforce development.

Castor’s legacy as an engaged Tampa police officer, including a tour of duty as chief, has left a legacy of a brilliant, functional community policing policy where the community knows the police officers and the police officers know the residents of the neighborhood communities.

Come along and join Castor to discover the reasons why Tampa is one of America's safest and fastest growing cities with a dynamic economy that attracts legions of 30-somethings to relocate from around the country.Underwriting support for Journeys of Discovery provided by Nashville's Big Back Yard economic initiative focused on rural communities in the southwest quarter of Tennessee and the Shoals Region of Northern Alabama.
